Victoria council supports movie-theatre liquor service

Roxy Theatre's application for liquor licence gets a boost

Victoria council has voted to support Roxy Theatre’s application for a liquor licence.

The endorsement will help the movie theatre obtain a primary liquor licence from the provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch.

If its application is successful, the theatre in Quadra Village can serve alcohol between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. seven days a week, but only coinciding with adult-only films or other live events.

That means it can serve alcohol to ticketholders starting one hour before a screening and ending one hour after a screening.
