“Get theatre tickets digitally, download a smart video trailer of how the play was directed, order and pay for snacks for the interval and, after a culture-packed night, order a taxi home — all by just swiping a cellphone over smart tags placed on the menus or around the foyer of the theatre.

“The cultural world should also keep abreast with the latest technological developments,” Ahonen said.

The theatre is running a pilot, involving technology from Finnish mobile phone-maker Nokia (NOK1V.HE) and telecommunications operator TeliaSonera (TLSN.ST), until the year-end and will extend its usage more widely if it proves successful.”
