Johnson City Commissioners continue to work out the details of a proposed ordinance that would allow consumption of alcohol in a movie theater.
The city’s current ordinance prohibits people from publicly consuming alcoholic beverages in a theater.
AMC came to Johnson City Commissioners with the idea of wanting to serve alcohol.
Johnson City is considering the change as AMC is in the middle of a $5 million renovation. The upgrades include a new lobby and adding reclining chairs.
The first reading of the proposed ordinance will happen Thursday, June 6.
