Albright Theatre given OK to sell beer and alcohol

BATAVIA – The Albright Theatre Company will be able to serve beer and wine at its performances starting in September.

The Batavia City Council agreed Monday to let Albright Theatre Company, a nonprofit community theater group, sell beer and wine at its productions.

Albright Theatre, located on the third floor of the
Batavia Government Center at 100 N. Island Ave. in downtown Batavia, also plans to offer dinner and theater packages.

The Albright Theatre will be added to a list of city properties where liquor could be sold or served with a license.

Albright Theatre is teaming with Aliano’s Ristorante in downtown Batavia.

Mario Aliano, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Phil Aliano, has said he will give a percentage of sales to Albright Theatre.

There will be signs posted stating that alcohol can’t leave the premises.

The license would be in effect only during Albright Theatre productions, Batavia City Administrator Bill McGrath said.

Albright Theatre plans to start selling beer and alcohol at its Sept. 6 performance.
