New Washington Law Allows Small Movie Theaters to Sell Alcohol – Will Any Open Here?

Small movie theaters allowed to serve alcohol
(Uptown Theater facebook page)

Gov. Inslee signed a bill this week allowing small movie theaters to sell alcohol — even if children are present.

The bill, which takes effect July 27, will allow theaters with four or less movie screens to sell alcohol to patrons.

These smaller theaters would apply for the $400-a-year license and would have to provide a plan to the Liquor Control Board for how they will monitor and conduct the sales if children will be attending movies with parents or guardians when the alcohol is served.

According to a report from the Clark County Columbian Newspaper, this law could mean the difference between small theaters surviving or going under.

Most of the theaters referenced in the report planned to have alcoholic beverages available by October.
