New Downtown AMC Movie Theatre To Serve Booze?
The signs have been up for a while, marking AMC as the new operator of the Market Arcade theatre.
Another sign posted on the door to the building shows that AMC has applied for a liquor license at the site.
According to WKBW, "The notice indicates that American Multi-Cinema Inc. has applied to allow on-premises sales of liquor at that address. Despite a push to allow alcohol sales in movie theaters in New York in 2017, it is not allowed without very specific conditions."
The news site reports they reached out to AMC and the State Liquor Authority for more information.
AMC's website refers to other locations' on-site alcohol sales as part of their MacGuffins Bar concession concept, where patrons can order specialty cocktails, wine, and beer for consumption prior to, and during a movie.
