I have just watched the first episode of Gotham and am curious why, if the Waynes are extremely rich, they bother walking through a dark street instead of driving and taking an expensive car in front of the theatre? It's common sense that walking in the street like that would not be recommended especially for millionaires like them.
When Bruce gives his account to Gordon, he says they were cutting through the alley to catch an uptown cab.
We just got out of the movies.
(sniffles) We were walking through the alley to catch an uptown cab, and a man came out of the shadows.
