LANCASTER — A cold beer, glass of wine, or frozen cocktail at the movies? It could be if the Lancaster Planning Commission approves a proposed conditional use permit for Cinemark 22 and IMAX.

The Commission will consider the conditional use permit when it meets at 5 p.m. today in council chambers at City Hall, 44933 Fern Ave.

Applicant Cinemark USA Inc. applied for a Type 47 liquor license for on-site consumption of beer, wine and spirits.

Cinemark already sells alcohol at the Antelope Valley Mall location.

According to Cinemark’s website, the company offers alcohol at select locations.

The company offers draft and bottled domestic, import and local craft beers; red, white and sparkling wines, frozen cocktails such as piña coladas; and specialty cocktails.

According to a staff report by planner Brenda Magana, alcohol sales under the proposed conditional use permit would occur between 11 a.m. and 30 minutes after the last show of the evening begins.

Alcohol would be sold at the concession stand nearest to the main entrance of the theater.

According to Magana’s report, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department does not oppose the proposed alcohol license.
