Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - We now know some of the obstacles in the way of Marcus Theaters getting a liquor license for West Acres. A representative of Marcus Theaters went to the liquor board Thursday, asking what type of license it would be eligible for.

Two types of liquor licenses are being looked at, and they have vastly different price tags. One would allow the theater to sell beer and wine, like the FargoDome, and cost $10,000. The other license, similar to those granted to restaurants, would let the theater sell spirits. That license would cost the theater over $100,000 to obtain.

Mark Grimes - Food & Beverage Manager, Marcus Theaters: “This is an amenity and the $100,000+ is tough on the business plan”

Marcus Theaters has not yet applied for a license. Any liquor license will need board approval.
