Will Rockford and Machesney park AMC Theaters Sell Alcohol?
AMC Theaters in Springfield, Illinois was just given the thumbs up on selling alcohol. A few people might end up taking a nap while sipping on their drink of choice in a dark room (which happens to me everytime my wife wants to watch a movie) but, nonetheless, selling alcohol inside AMC 14 and AMC 16 isn't a bad idea. Keep the limit to one or two drinks maximum so nobody is getting loaded while checking out a new flick.
Aside from enforcing a drink limit and not allowing free refills, one might consider steering clear of a $9 beer night. Wait, it is the movies we're talking about so a pint a domestic beer might actually cost nine bucks. But, I digress, maybe it would bring in more people to the theaters and not just teens trying to get out of parents' sights so they can make-out for ninety minutes.
