Question:
As stated in the IVLV Newsletter this week, Galaxy Cannery Theaters inside the Cannery Casino is the first movie theater in Clark County (Las Vegas) now serving beer to anyone age 21 and over, after 6p daily. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question do you think this is a good idea or a bad idea and why?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Reader Poll Replies:

I think this is a great idea.  Today there are so many bad movies that maybe a few beers will help me enjoy spending $10 to see a movie that will be on cable in a week.  David Sawyer  Illinois

This seems like a logical idea for Las Vegas.  With a town that has 24 hour alcohol rules already, why wouldnt it be good to serve beer?  Janet Kaskan  NY

its a great idea. as long movies are only a few hours long meaning that heavy beer comsumption is kept at a minimum, or it should be. keep an eye on people who come in feeling no pain and refuse to serve as you would in a bar. should work out well. of course empty beer cups will be left here and there so after each showing a quick walk through will be needed. not all attending will drink of course so all that do should respect that and act accordingly. wonder what the price of a beer is?  Ralph  Hamden, CT

This Idea is simply a plan to create more revenue for this venue as if it were'nt expensive enough already to watch a movie. This will create two (2) problems with this idea for the other people in attendance, 1.) some drinkers will get drunk and talk through-out the movie, and 2.) they'll fall asleep and start snoring if the novie should become boreing,
so my suggestion would be to limit each person to no more than (2) beers, but that's just my opinion. Happy Thanks Giving to All!  big John  Los Angeles, Ca.

I think it is a good idea. Where I live in the past they had Cinema draughthouses. You could get beer and wine and table service with food choices. It was a great evening out to watch a movie and have dinner and a drink. I know that this is not the same thing, but it was very enjoyable.  Kathleen Abramowski  West Palm Beach, Fl

Theaters sell soda pop, why shouldn't they sell beer. Over consumption of either drink will cause someone to annoy the other theater goers because of frequent trips to the bathroom. Perhaps the theater could reserve a special section in back for the beer drinkers?  Len Boscarine  Burien, WA

The potential for a undisciplined drinking patron becoming obnoxiously loud to the point of disrupting my viewing pleasure is too great. I'll pay to see the same movie down the road. Movie theaters are no place for drinking or for infants or children younger than six years old. There is a time and a place ...yada yada. Nick Ogle  Knoxville, TN

No I don't think this is a good idea. Sence they can only allow 21 year olds in,next they will show x rated movies. Nothing wrong with x rated movies , But add the beer and add all those people, you will have nothing but a big sex party. With people who want to party and the people who don't. Movies theaters are not the places for beer.  steve Sedalia Mo

I think it's a bad idea, because a lot of people are going to have to get up in the middle of the movie to take a leak. Perhaps a couple of intermissions for refills and/or bathroom breaks?  Michael Payne  Woodstock, GA

this is vegas and its another cool thing to do that you cant do everywhere. so why not...its salty and the cold beer will be great. leave it to vegas to add one more thing you cant necessarily do at home....ya!  theresa holden  zion illinois
