Are we going to be able to have a beer at West Mall 7?

This is way overdue;

New 2017-18 Retail Malt Beverage License for West Mall Theatres Inc., West Mall

7, 2101 West 41st Street, #33 (CUP not required).

• New 2018 Retail Wine License for West Mall Theatres Inc., West Mall 7, 2101 West

In Europe and other cities across the country you can get a beer or wine at the movie theatre, some even serve apps and tappas. A friend of mine explored doing it in Sioux Falls like 10 years ago.

It happened in Sioux Falls a number of years ago (about 40) at the old K-Cinema – probably under a different name. That is the building at 37th and Dakota now housing Sioux Falls Lutheran school.

It was Stars and Steins and it was on Minnesota Ave where T&A is (or was). Saw Purple Rain and The Terminator there. So, 1984 – 85?

You can drink beer at McDonalds in Europe too and wine at French McDonalds…… But won’t this just make a bad movie better?…. Or, new meaning to movies like “The Hangover”….and “Reefer Madness?”

I’m OK with 1 16oz beer per movie max and only in R rated. You can only purchase a beer ticket when you buy the movie ticket. You don’t need to get drunk at the movies and not with kids.

I wish we could clean up the behavior during sporting events. I’d like to see a 2 drink max as a rule.

You can do that while holding a beer?! Wow! You are more talented than me.

Once he’s out of office and SMG revokes his free pass to The Denty, this will become MMM’s new hangout for his regular Coors Light fix. Matinees daily for the drunk and unemployed.
