The simple answer is, to make money.

My only question is why didn't the management handle this properly? This woman should have been ejected from the theatre the minute she wouldn't comply with the rules - she had been doing this throughout the performance & had been asked to stop, but refused. Right or wrong, I don't blame Kevin Williamson. I'm sick & tired of hearing & seeing everyone's personal conversations, no matter what the setting. My old acting teacher, Bill Hickey, had it right years ago when he said television has ruined theatre & movies because people think they're in their living room. When I pay money for a ticket, I pay to see & hear the the show, not the audience members.

Courtney & Madonna was absolutely priceless! Another MTV moment I loved was during Woodstock '94 when Kennedy shoved a microphone in a sleeping attendee's face & asked him if he was a fan of house music. It's one of those things that's forever stuck in my mind.

I thought of another childhood favorite that I've continued to read again over the years.  "Up A Road Slowly" by Irene Hunt. The part where Aggie dies can still make me bawl like a baby.

 So beautifully written!  I could barely get through the part where she talks about the dogs in heavan.

 I don't know if it's weird, but I understand what you mean.  You also brought to mind one of my favorites as a teenager -- "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton. "Stay gold, Ponyboy, Stay gold....."

Midnight Cowboy by James Leo Herlihy. When I was 14, I stayed up all night reading it, got to the end just as the sun was coming up & bawled my eyes out. And almost anything by John Irving can make me laugh out loud on one page & cry on the next.

How about Pat Boone singing "Crazy Train?" Although it was cool in a weird sort of way....

Not that I personally ever gave a flying, but what about Madonna's "Like A Prayer" video? I remember it creating quite a brouhaha back in the day.

Babydoll's fantasy gang in "Sucker Punch."  A strange & critically panned film, but incredibly stylish & those girls kicked a$$!

Party Monster. The whole thing is a giant PSA, but the scene where they're looking for cocaine they might have dropped & end up tearing a hole in the wall is pretty grim.

 Your comment brought to mind the Twilight Zone episode "Time Enough to Last," where Burgess Merideth finds the library books all intact after the H-bomb goes off & he's the last person alive.  Finally having all the time in the world to read, his glasses get broken.

I'd add the library from the film "The Box."

"The Rocky Horror Glee Show."  It might not have been the best in the world, but at least somebody made a stab at it.

Robert Mitchum singing "Leaning on the Everlasting Arm" as Reverend Harry Powell in the original "Night of the Hunter" still creeps me out every time I hear it.

I haven't had any use for Norman Mailer since he championed Jack Henry Abbott's prison release & Abbott went on to murder a friend of mine.
