Bloor Hot Docs Cinema approved for liquor licence
The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema is set to become one of the few movie houses in Toronto that can serve in-theatre alcohol. Part of the plan since its renovation and rebrand earlier this year, the theatre put in a successful liquor licence application that will, if nothing else, help make its documentary-heavy programming just a little more entertaining. After all, what's more refined than washing down a doc with some Syrah? And if the film turns out to be a bust...well you know what to do.
Movie theatres have tended to shy away from seeking licences on account of the requirement that they designate their spaces as adult-only, but it's surely a sound move for a cinema that caters to a predominantly adult clientele already. Specifics as to the booze selection have yet to be made available, but we know there'll be wine and beer, and that's enough for me.
