EMAGINE THEATER PLANS NEWEST VENUE FOR DOWNTOWN ROYAL OAK

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.

Are you a proud Detroiter or metro-Detroiter? Your blog is called "Detroit Army" yet you say you are a proud "metro-Detroiter", I'm confused on that one.

You, and the rest of the world, certainly cannot be proud of Detroit proper. The city, its public officials, its citizens, its departments, its economy, its culture, its school system......and so on....and so on ARE A LAUGHABLE LAUGHABLE LAUGHABLE WORLD JOKE. If Kwame Kilpatrick ran for mayor again HE WOULD BE VOTED BACK IN! If rap artist Lil' Wayne ran for office he would be voted in. That's the culture that you love? No wonder why Detroit's kids have no chance from birth. I've seen the public system at work first hand and it's so backwords that 3rd world countries run better than Detroit.

Every crime statistic is well above the national average (please see the link below as I've compared Detroit to Chicago)

I'm very worried about what type of "army" you are trying to initiate. Please elaborate on your army because the segregation between Detroiters and metro-Detroiters is a war in itself. Who's side are you on?

My vote is for L. Brooks Patterson. Someone who wants a civil society that has economic growth. Not a broke city who's council members are the nightly joke on The Tonight Show.

Re-examine exactly where you stand and what actions you do, other than this pointless and effortless blog, in order to better this area. Blogging isn't the answer, ACTION IS.

Getting back to the post at hand. . .

If you look at the way Emagine has handled alcohol at their other theaters, I think it would be safe to assume they would run a tight ship when it comes to the booze in Royal Oak. In fact, in order to get a licquour license at all, Emagine will have to show their track record at their other theaters to the city officials and convince them as much. Sure, patrons will be able to enjoy margaritas, beer, wine, and other adult beverages, but the place will certainly not turn into a frat house.

I'll have to confirm with you, to even think of Detroit as an actual city is kind of funny. I've been to Mosul & Baghdad and i've seen more civilized people living in mud huts than I have in Detroit.

Its not a real city, its a joke, and the more we laugh at it the better chance it'll have at taking itself seriously.
