The Carmike Chantilly 13 in Montgomery, Alabama has received its beer and wine license from the Montgomery City Council, according to a recent article in the Montgomery Advertiser:

The theater also will cater to moviegoers who like to sip some beer or wine while taking in a movie. The Montgomery City Council approved the theater's request for a beer and wine license Tuesday evening.

There will be no box office outside the theater. Instead, visitors will buy both their tickets and concessions inside at the same counter. There will be a separate line devoted solely to alcohol purchases.


Carmike has filed applications to serve beer and wine in several Alabama cities where it has theaters. Montgomery is the first city in the state to grant a license to a Carmike theater.

[James Pittman, a Daphne-based attorney for Carmike] said Carmike would have several safeguards in place to ensure that minors would not be served alcohol at the theater.

Identification will be scanned to ensure that the ID is valid, and the person who shows the ID cannot buy more than one drink at a time.

Those who show ID will be given a wristband, and there will be a limit on how many drinks that person can buy during that trip to the theater, he said.

Also, beer and wine will be served in clear cups as opposed to the opaque cups used for soft drinks, and drinks will not be allowed to be taken outside the theater, he said.

The theater is scheduled to open July 18, 2014.
