In the words of Paul Harvey, "here's a strange..."

I went to the Elk Rapids Cinema in Elk Rapids, MI yesterday and saw "Bringing Down the House" (good movie, btw). I hadn't been there in three years, and it was still the same (a TON of missing seats abd the backlight mural is in the midst of a two-year roofing repair project).

One thing that kinda amazed me was that they DON'T sell Pepsi or Coke.... Not even 7up/Dr. Pepper products. Instead, and I think this is a first, they only sell LOCAL pop products. They sell their own brand of pop called "Elk Rapids Cinema Director's Soda". I tried it with some cherry syrup from a local cherry farm, and it ain't bad.

Question is, is this a first? Comments?

Wow! The ONLY place selling soft drinks I ever knew about that didn't sell Coke/Pepsi was when Arby's restaurants sold RC Cola for a brief period in the 1990's. Every theater I've ever been in sold Coke or Pepsi.
