I object to a wine and beer license at the old Capitol theater in East Arlington. It is just unseemly , unecessary and wrong. Let those who want to drink alcohol go to Medford or Somerville.... Arlington has a better history and need not stoop to such levels. I just want to enjoy the movies there as I have for over 60 years

I agree wholeheartedly with everything Peggy G. has to say. Furthermore, I don't think it all appropriate for liquor to be served in a family venue such as the neighborhood movie theater where children are always present. Liquor does not have to be associated and present with every form of entertainment.
