AN  ACT  to  amend  the  alcoholic  beverage control law, in relation to
  authorizing motion picture theatres to serve alcoholic beverages

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  27  of  section  3 of the alcoholic beverage
control law is amended to read as follows:
  27. "Restaurant" shall mean a place which is regularly and in  a  bona
fide  manner  used  and kept open for the serving of meals to guests for
compensation and which has suitable kitchen facilities connected  there-
with,  containing conveniences for cooking an assortment of foods, which
may be required for ordinary meals, the kitchen of which  must,  at  all
times,  be  in  charge  of a chef with the necessary help, and kept in a
sanitary condition with the proper amount of refrigeration  for  keeping
of food on said premises and must comply with all the regulations of the
local  department  of  health. RESTAURANT SHALL INCLUDE A MOTION PICTURE
THEATRE, MOVIE THEATRE OR OTHER VENUE THAT SHOWS  MOTION  PICTURES  THAT
MEET  THE  DEFINITIONS  OF  RESTAURANT  AND MEALS, AND ALL SEATING IS AT
TABLES WHERE MEALS ARE SERVED. "Meals" shall mean the  usual  assortment
of  foods  commonly  ordered at various hours of the day; the service of
such food and victuals only as sandwiches or salads shall not be  deemed
a  compliance  with  this  requirement. "Guests" shall mean persons who,
during the hours when meals are regularly  served  therein,  come  to  a
restaurant  for  the purpose of obtaining, and actually order and obtain
at such time, in good faith, a meal therein. Nothing in this subdivision
contained, however, shall be construed to require that any food be  sold
or purchased with any beverage.
  S  2.  Subdivision 6 of section 64-a of the alcoholic beverage control
law, as added by chapter 531 of the laws of 1964, is amended to read  as
follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
