ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s governor wants to make it easier for movie theaters to serve beer, wine and other alcoholic drinks.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday proposed making a change to the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control law. The change would make it easier to allow beer and wine sales at movie theaters, along with the sale of cider, mead and spirits, according to his office.
Movie theaters under current law can only sell alcohol if they have full kitchens and tables inside screening rooms, according to Cuomo’s office.
His office says the change would give craft producers more retail outlets and provide more revenue for theaters.
Under the proposal, adults with tickets to a movie rated PG-13 or higher would be able to buy one drink at a time.
