It seems like an obvious concept, but around Metro Detroit, Emagine Theater was the first to do it. It, in this case, is serving beer and hard alcohol during movies. Emagine now plans to open its newest theater in downtown Royal Oak. Ultimately, the question will be, can crowds of drunk twenty somethings be able to control themselves?
Apparently Emagine Entertainment founder Paul Glantz thinks so. In a statement in the Detroit News recently Glantz stated, "We're at the very outset but we're very excited about the process and hope to get all the government applications wrapped up this summer. "First we're applying for a liquor license and then we'll have to apply to the building department for a construction permit."
This could be a lot of fun for a growing downtown...or be a complete drunken catastrophe. Let's hope for the former, or if it suits you better, the latter.
