There is no federal law prohibiting consumption of alcohol in a U.S. movie theater . To the contrary, many theater chains (e.g. AMC Theaters , Cinemark, and Alamo Draft House) have bars and customers take those drinks into the theater . I routinely have a nice beer or cocktail purchased at the theater , during the movie .
AMC’s “enhanced food and beverage” options, aimed at increasing this source of revenue, are turning some of its theaters into full-fledged bars and restaurants. Forty-four AMC theaters now serve alcohol at bars called MacGuffins. And at 11 theaters , people can get served full meals at their seats during the film.

Prices for cocktails, beer , alcohol-free selections, and wines by the glass range from $4.79 to $15.29, which suits all budgets. Guests typically consume less alcohol at AMC theatres but desire a higher quality product, including premium and ultra-premium brands.
Is alcohol allowed at drive -ins? Generally no. Almost all drive -ins prohibit bringing alcohol . There are a few drive -ins that sell alcohol at their concession areas but you are not allowed to take the alcohol back to your car and it must be consumed in the concession/bar area.
While some theaters request no outside food be brought in, AMC Entertainment Inc., one of the country’s largest movie chains, has an outright ban. People who ignore the rule can be asked to leave. No, it is not illegal for the person bringing the outside food .

Most theaters do not make their money from ticket sales. They make money from selling the food and drinks. As a result, they don’t want you bringing your own food and drinks in. Further, it would be their right to order you to leave, without providing you with a refund for your tickets, if they catch you .
AMC wants pieces that take up as much room in a bag as possible and carry a heft that moviegoers expect. This browser does not support the video element. Popcorn is sent from Weaver Popcorn to the logistics company Vistar, which then delivers 35-pound bags to theaters.
