The Carmike 12 in Statesboro has a single auditorium on one end of the building called "Mugs and Movies" that offers full-service dining, including (cheap) beer, all while you watch a movie.

I know it's illegal to carry while inside that auditorium, but what about the other 11?

I could see how that's considered part of the same building of a business that serves alcohol. You could always call the Sheriff or Probate Court. They've been helpful to me thus far. I haven't called asking about specific laws, but I had a great experience obtaining my GFL.

"...or establishments at which alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises."

O.C.G.A. § 16-11-127

But you can't leave Mugs with a drink.

Trust me, I've tried... the time my ex dragged me to the theater to see some God-awful movie that I wanted to be WASTED before I sat through...

Better yet, next time I see Dr. Deloach (tonight at work, probly) I'll ask him to ask the probate judge for me.

They're all freakin' related... I think the probate judge is his brother...

Yea, it's Statesboro, I believe it.
Everybody here is named Deloach, Mikell, or Nesmith.

Half the Deloachs are successful (Deloach's Music, Dr. Deloach, Snooky's, the probate judge, the superior court judge) and the other half are trailer park trash.[/url]

While I don't profess to know the correct answer, it would seem logical that this is no different than carrying in a mall which certain probate judges have decided do NOT constitute a public gathering. Yet, show me one mall which doesn't contain a restaurant that serves beer?

Because they are unlikely to have studied the issue, but don't seem to care much about giving you a completely uninformed opinion anyway.

I wouldn't.
Yeah. They are likely to tell you anything with more than two people is a public gathering.

I don't think movie theaters are public gatherings since you have to pay a fee to enter the movie theater. Am I wrong?

. . . it appears from reading subsection (b) and giving the words their ordinary meaning that the statute should apply, in addition to the situations described therein, when people are gathered or will be gathered for a particular function and not when a weapon is carried lawfully to a public place, where people may gather. Accordingly, the focus is not on the "place" but on the "gathering" of people . . .
