Now coming to a theater near you: Beer and wine

January 5, 2015

Now at a local movie theater near you: beer and wine.
A bill approved by the Washington State House of Representatives in 2013 made it legal for movie theaters to sell wine and beer to patrons 21 and over. It also allows small venues that serve food to sell hard alcohol.
The Alpine Theater in Colville filed their application to serve beer and wine with the Washington State Liquor Control Board last September. The Colville business was approved in October 2014 and began selling alcohol about three weeks ago, according to owner Steve Wisner.
