What do you think of serving beer & wine at a movie theater?

Starting this weekend the movie theater I manage at will start serving beer and wine. I've gotten a lot of positive reactions BUT I've also gotten fussed at, eyes rolled at me, teeth sucked, etc when they ask what we're building and I say a bar.

So, what do you ladies think?

  • We have a couple here and they all do really well. They are nice, comfy and the food is good and a great place to take the family. Some people don't have the option of a sitter or family member to watch the kids so it's a good way to incorporate the entire family into date night.

  • Sure. I remember when we were in the Air Force in Germany that we went to movies in England (we traveled alot) where they served wine,beer,and it was really quite nice!

  • Oh---also when my daughter and I went to NYC and saw some Broadway plays, they always served wines,etc, during the Intermissions and it was classy. Really made the evening special.

  • minnesotanice, Some theaters we can't even go into because of gangs and roudy teens....last year on Christmas Day there was a shooting at the theater we usually went too....and that theater wasn't even in what is considered a "bad part of town"....any kind of liquor in theaters around here would just be ridiculous!!!

  • The regular theatres by us don't serve alcohol but a rep theatre does. Doesn't cause a fuss among patrons so it's fine by me.

  • We go to the Movie Tavern all the time and it's a blast. It's always packed too.

  • The theater we go to regularly has a small bar that serves a few different beers and coolers and stuff. It's roped off from the rest of the theater and there's a sign that says that the drinks can't leave that area. I know a lot of people go to the theater a long time before their movie starts, so they can eat (our theater has pizza and burgers and stuff), so why not enjoy a drink too? I've never seen anyone drunk at the movies and I've only ever seen like two people in there at once, so I really think it's fine.

  • I think it's awesome. I know a cinema here that does that and serves food and they are doing amazing. I would tthough make sure you have dome big security guys just incase someone gets too tipsy and tries to act crazy. ( I work in a club so I know how they can get) GL!
