Does the converse hold true, then: licensed establishments can screen movies during service? Or has that always been the case?

Yes, licensed establishments have always been able to screen movies.

Get permission though, unless you are screening like a 1930's film with expired copyright. Royalty prices are still pretty steep even to play you own personal VHS copy of Mrs. Doubtfire.

http://www.criterion...vielicence.html

Restrictions:
1. You can only show a film from the studios we have the non-theatrical rights to (Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, Sony Pictures Classics, Motion International, Astral, Canadian Famous Players, Lions Gate Films, Paramount Pictures, Paramount Advantage, Paramount Classics, Alliance Films Inc., Mongrel Media, and many more).
2. Advertising can only be done on the premise of the Institution.


I operate a summer camp for children and screen videocassettes for "movie nights" as a camp activity. The films are available from a video rental store in my community. Am I breaking the law?

1. Yes. The owner of the copyright in a film has the exclusive right to perform or show the film publicly. Unlicensed screenings of a movie constitute illegal public performances.

I don’t use films on videocassettes or DVD as I pick-up movies with my satellite dish in my tavern. Is this illegal?

1. Yes. Showing these movies in a tavern, restaurant or other establishment open to the public constitutes a public performance for which a license is required. The technical ability to receive the movie by a satellite dish does not give you the legal right to show it to the public in your commercial establishment.

B.C. government launches two-stage consultation on liquor law reform
http://www.biv.com/a...quor-law-reform

The B.C. government launched a consultation on how to reform the province's liquor laws by sending letters on August 7 to what it calls "major stakeholders."

Parliamentary secretary for liquor policy reform John Yap's letters ask for written feedback and ideas for change. In the next few weeks, letters are expected to be sent to more than 10,000 liquor licensees and liquor agency store owners.

"I know many British Columbians have a lot of opinions and our government is open to hearing them as we move forward in this process," said Yap.

He will follow this feedback by meeting with industry, local governments, First Nations, police and health and social policy associations in September and October. [Read more]

You know, I hear all sorts of things: seagulls, sirens, Mrs. Fugger's mother going on about stuff and even the odd bum fight - it doesn't mean that I'm listening.

I predict one big, populist change that will mollify the useful idiots - like allowing a happy hour, without the corresponding drop in the wholesale cost of booze, so that licensees continue getting screwed out of any glimmer of a chance to turn a profit.

^second that.

Our entire set of liquor regs need to be re-evaluated. We're paying some of the highest liquor taxes on the planet with some of the wackiest restrictions.

Here is the problem with the neocon movement, writ large. The government should be looking for input from citizens.

Didn't the Liberals look at this 12 years ago just after they came to power? As I recall they were going to close all the government liquor stores and move everything private. You were supposed to get your juice, pop and beer all in the same aisle

You mean (gasp!) like in La Belle Province (Quebec)? As that's been about the only thing holding back the hordes of Quebecers from moving to B.C. -- they amply outnumber us (8,000,000+), we could find our official langage switched to (Quebec) french before too many years passed, if they discover they can pick up their booze in grocery stores here.

Much ado about nothing.

Don't we currently have more liquor stores than grocery stores?

Ya, when I've been in Quebec, I've seen no problems.

Well you can get beer, wine, and all the hard liquor you want at any grocery store in Arizona. Doesn't appear to cause any problems. The only time I saw anyone drinking in the store he was having a belt of mouth wash.
Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Dont leave out the pharmacies and hotels to sell booze. And more home delivery by taxis. And later hours... if not round the clock. This might keep the police in check from parking and watching porn all nite..

Impressive that I find out about this only on the day it closes. How much are they paying their public relations staff again?
