Johnson City Commission to hold first reading of proposed ordinance allowing alcohol in theaters

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.
