A Flick and a Cocktail May Be Coming Soon to Chinatown

November 13, 2017

Moviegoers may soon be able to grab a beer or a bourbon when they’re catching a flick at Regal Cinemas’ 14-screen theater in Chinatown.

Regal Gallery Place Stadium 14 has applied for a liquor license from D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, according to a public filing. The license would be for a movie theater “serving pizza, chicken wings, pre-packaged candy, popcorn and alcoholic beverages.”

Regal Proposes to serve alcohol between 11 a.m. and 11:30 p.m., according to the filing.

The move may be an attempt to keep up with the competition in D.C.’s rapidly expanding movie theater scene. While the Gallery Place theater was one of just a few first-run theaters in the District a few years ago — and one of only two large ones, Georgetown’s AMC being the other — many more have opened or are planning to open soon.
