Theater Fined For ‘Hangover II’ Showing
October 1, 2011 by Post Team
The fine issued by the board Thursday liquid state is the first of Brewvies, which only allows people over 21 years to attend his films and serves food and liquor to customers. But under state law, many of PG-13 and R-rated movie theater could net a fine due to the prohibition of showing a movie with sex acts, a nde or even “touch” of the breasts or buttocks .
While the fine for a first offense and 1627 was, repeat offenders can be fined up to 25,000 and lose its liquor license for up to 10 days.
The law is generally used to regulate strip clubs, which are not allowed to have nde dancing – G-strings and pasties are required to use – if you serve alcohol. The law applies only to businesses with liquor licenses, so it would not apply to alcohol-free theater.
Utah Highway Patrol officers issued the citation against Brewvies in early September after a complaint filed with the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
The film was a violation because of several scenes, spokesman Dwayne Baird Patrol said. “Hangover II” includes full frontal nudity of the male characters, female and transvestite and also has a scene showing a monkey simulate a sexual act on a monk.
Brewvies director Andy Murphy told The Salt Lake Tribune has always complied with the liquor laws in the state, and “do not want to stir up anything.”
Brewvies has a state liquor license in 2009 that allowed customers to enjoy a glass of wine and mixed. The theater has been open since 1997, but was low alcohol beers that only requires the approval of city government.
The liquor board set the amount of the fine for such violations, and there was no leeway in the amount of Brewvies, department director Francine Giani said, adding that she is planning to urge the Board to revise its program well.
