Alcohol will now be on the menu at theaters in British Columbia after the provincial government reversed its long-standing ban on booze in cinemas.

Housing Minister Rich Coleman, who is responsible for liquor laws, said this week that multiplex theaters can now apply for a license to serve alcohol in theaters that play adult-rated movies and in adjacent lobbies.

He said the theaters must be closed to minors during screenings because it would be difficult to enforce the rules against underage drinking in a dark theater.

“These changes strike an appropriate balance between allowing liquor service at theaters and limiting minors’ access to alcohol,” Coleman said.
