Grantham Reel wants to sell alcohol

Have your say

Cinema-goers in Grantham could soon be drinking a beer or wine while watching a film.

The Reel in St Catherine’s Road has applied for a licence and cinema manager Suzanne Stokes said if the application was successful anybody over 18 would have the opportunity to buy an alcoholic drink.

She said: “It just gives people the option. A lot of cinemas are now selling alcohol.”

The bid to sell alcohol coincides with the upcoming live screening of Swan Lake from St Petersburg on June 6. Reel want to screen more live events at their cinemas and hope that this combined with the opportunity to buy alcohol will be a big attraction.
