Utah Law Prohibits Alcohol in BOOK OF MORMON Theatre Due to Simulated Sex Acts

CBLDF is reporting that The Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City is no longer allowing beer, served at the concession stands, into the theatre because of a very specific law. Utah law prohibits alcohol to be consumed during any performance containing "the exhibition of simulated sex acts." The law is enforced even in looser situations, such as when a brewing company found themselves facing legal trouble for serving during "Deadpool".

For the remaining three-week run of Book of Mormon, Eccles Theater patrons will be permitted to consume alcohol in the lobby, but no drink will be welcomed into the theater.
