I can think of some performers who have actively encouraged their audience to 
take pictures/videos and share them (live) on social media.
Having decent connectivity obviously can support such activities.

Install it!

Add me to the “install it” list as we’re going through this exact thing with 
our theater department. They have pushed back with concerns that “people would 
be using devices instead of watching the performances”. But that venue is used 
for more than just plays and we can’t stop people from looking at cell phones.

I'll jump on the install train. Every time I try to save the university money, 
it only comes back to bite me in the rear.

I’d install it, you can always disable SSIDs in those areas to prevent people

Hello all,

I’m wondering if anyone here has dealt with a decision on wireless in the 
theaters, concert halls, or recital halls on their campus. We have a new arts 
complex coming on line in the next two years and there’s no clear direction 
from faculty on whether wireless for the audience is desirable. The previous 
main theater, and other currently used theaters on campus, did/do not have full 
connectivity for the audience (just a few aps tacked on the walls that were 
useless when the room was full). Facilities planning is favorable toward 
building it in, so I’d prefer that too, especially since it would be much 
harder or impossible to install if the faculty changes their mind in a few 
years once the building is complete. However, I’m not sure whether there is 
really an expectation from the audience that they should have wifi when they 
attend a show or concert.

Has anyone dealt with this on their campus? What influenced your choice?
