The best part of a bad movie is the popcorn. You can at least count on that.

What if you had a chance to enjoy that movie with an ice cold beer and a tub of popcorn?

Well if AMC Theatres gets their way, you'll soon be able to enjoy a beer while watching the latest flicks at Showplace 16 in Rockford and Showplace 14 in Machesney Park.

AMC currently serves booze at theaters in Schaumburg, Lake in The Hills, Vernon, Hills, Chicago, and Madison, Wisconsin.

The Rockford Register Star says  AMC "has approached the two municipalities (Rockford and Machesney Park) about serving alcohol in the movie theaters."

An amendment was proposed and to Machesney Park Liquor Commision in May, with a vote coming tonight.

Regardless of how the vote turns out, an AMC representative told the Rockford Register Star, it would be many months before beer is rolled out at local theaters.

Until then, we only have our popcorn to get us through a bad movie.
