Drinks and a movie could become a regular thing at a local movie theater.

Celebration! Cinema is seeking approval to allow the sale of alcohol for on-site consumption at Celebration! Cinema North in Grand Rapids at the Feb. 11 Grand Rapids Planning Commission meeting.

The approval would grant the movie theater the ability for patrons to consume alcohol at a new lobby bar and during movie screenings.

Celebration! Cinema does currently sell alcohol at four of its locations, including Mount Pleasant and Portage, but not in Grand Rapids.

The local movie theater chain also runs a seasonal beer-and-movie program, Brewed for Film: A Movie Series, when it partners with Founders Brewing Co. to serve beer during selected movies.
