Movie theater closes
The movie theater at the mall about two miles away from where I lived has closed. Yesterday was its last day. My son took Charlie (13 years old) to see Star Wars VII. He reports that the concession stand was selling stuff out of cardboard boxes. Nearest movie theater is now 30 miles away.

Reason for the closing seems to be that the city council would not OK selling beer at the concession stand.

Mall management is looking for a new owner for the theater.

Hmmm... The big mega-theater that I usually go to is going the other way -- they just added a full bar that serves not only beer and wine, but also mixed drinks. This may be a trend.

We're going tonight...

I love the local theater.... We can go - in the evening --- get snacks - popcorn and soda -- and not spend 20 bucks for the two of us...

Plus - they have great seating...

And the place is pretty damned clean....

Yeah, booze and movies. Takes me back to 1968, drive-in theater showing creature features 'til dawn on Saturday and who the hell was watching them anyway? Blush Tongue

Where do you live?

Evening tickets in our theater in Mass: $12-13 per ticket, one popcorn and two sodas would cost another $12! Close to $40 for the two of us.

I call bullshit.

There are 4 movie theaters within 5 miles of my house and a dozen within 10 miles and not one of them serve beer.

Doesn't sound like a beer problem to me.

Most of the movies made these days are so bad that you need a drink to get through them.

Better to simply stay home and download them off a Torrent site.

I don't know where you live but I live in central Ohio. My daughter lives in Columbus and she says that movie theaters in Columbus serve beer.
