Idaho — Idaho authorities are telling movie theatres serving alcohol that they can't provide drinks during showings of the erotic blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Idaho State Police's Alcohol Beverage Control has contacted at least two theatres showing the popular film, ordering them to comply with a law banning businesses from serving booze to people watching sexually explicit films.
The law lists types of scenes requiring a booze ban. Fifty Shades of Grey features bondage and sadomasochism scenes.
Moviegoer Michele Williams of Eagle tells the Idaho Statesman in Boise in a Friday story that the message being sent is that women can't control themselves if they drink during the movie.
