DE Lawmakers Looks To Bring Alcohol To Movie Theater

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - A new bill in Delaware could allow people to buy and consume alcohol at the movies.

Under the proposed law, theatres would have to obtain liquor licenses and then would be allowed to sell beer, wine, and liquor to movie-goers.
This is still in the early stages, the bill was brought up April 10th and is set to be discussed once session resumes on the 29th.

47 ABC spoke with some locals about what they thought of the idea.

"There's already problems enough with people yelling and shouting in movie theaters," said Rich Roop of Seaford.
John Mchugh of Laurel says "you got kids in there all the time, and we don't need adults in there drinking."

For Koty Baily of Laurel, drinking at the movies could be a safety hazard, "people these days they get drunk, they act stupid, they get in fights, they start drama."

More than 30 states already allow drinking in theatres, including Maryland and Virginia, with the same liquor license stipulation.
