Getting boozy at the movies?

That's what customers might eventually be doing at AMC Theatres in New York City.

The theater chain is considering putting restaurants in its theaters.

Under a new state law, that would allow customers to bring alcoholic drinks to their seats.

The measure is aimed at drawing more adults to the movies.

AMC runs several theaters in Manhattan, from Harlem to Times Square and the Lower East Side.
