Downtown Grand Theatre Granted Liquor License, Plans Rennovations

(4-17-14) The Grand Theatre in downtown Lincoln officially received its liquor license yesterday and may start rennovating as soon as today. The Lincoln City Council approved the measure last month and the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission voted 3 to 0 yesterday to grant Marcus Theatres movie theatre a liquor license.  Opponents argued that alcohol should not be served next to the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and around minors. The liquor license is only for the downtown theatre. Other Marcus Theatres sell alcohol, including at least one in Omaha, Neb.
