Superior Court Judge Allen Nielson ordered the 10 and 11-year-old boys held on $100,000 bonds.

Beer and a movie?

February 6, 2013

Beer could be added to the menu of the concession stand at your local movie theater if Olympia lawmakers approve a bill that would allow theaters to serve beer and wine for patrons ages 21 and over.
“I think it’s a great idea,” says Alpine Theatre and Auto Vue Drive-In owner Steve Wisner. “It just makes sense. States like Oregon have done this for a while now, and it works just fine. It’s small business friendly.”
