theater ticket


theater ticket
A ticket entitling to admission to a performance in a theater, ordinarily entitling the holder to a seat reserved for him and noted upon the ticket. A license issued by the proprietor, pursuant to the contract, as convenient evidence of the right of the holder to admission to the theater at the date named, with the privilege specified, subject, however, to his observance of any reasonable condition appearing on the face thereof. The license, though granted for a consideration, is revocable for a violation of such condition by the holder of the ticket in the manner specified therein. The ticket is not the contract, although to some extent it is evidence thereof. The contract is implied from the circumstances, and is an agreement on the part of the proprietor, for the consideration mentioned, to admit the holder of the ticket, upon presentation thereof. to his theater at the date named, with the right to occupy the seat specified, subject, however, to his observance of any reasonable condition appearing on the face thereof. Collister v Hayman, 183 NY 250, 76 NE 20.
