Residents React to Movie Theater Selling Wine and Beer
Tonight, reaction to the story we brought you last night at 10. Montgomery will soon have a movie theater that will sell beer and wine. But not everyone thinks that's a smart concept.
You don't have to go to a bar or restaurant to have a drink now. City Council members approved an ordinance yesterday that will allow Carmike Cinemas 13 on Chantilly Parkway to sell both beer and wine.
The new state-of-the-art Carmike Cinemas theater in Montgomery will soon be open for business. And selling adult beverages will be part of that business. It's something some Montgomery residents say could cause trouble.
The Capri Theather also sells beer and wine but of course, that's more of an adult establishment. Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange says he likes the concept, saying he believes this is the way entertainment venues are going.
Montgomery will be the third location in Alabama to have a movie theater capable of selling beer and wine. The Wharf in Baldwin County and a movie theater in Huntsville also sell adult beverages.
