  • Nipping out of theatres at the interval, for a pint and a smoke would seem to be an old past time.
    In my younger days theatre bars were always tiny affairs, getting served was a nightmare. 
    So at the interval we used to decamp into the pub next door until the play restarted. 
     Looks like we were unknowingly carrying on an old tradition.
