Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Stoneham may grant 1 license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 12 of said chapter 138 or 1 license for the sale of wines and malt beverages to be drunk on the premises pursuant to said section 12 of said chapter 138; provided, however, that the license shall be restricted to theaters in the town of Stoneham with seating capacities of 300 or more. The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17.
The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of a license granted pursuant to this act to any other location, but it may grant a license to a new applicant at the same location if the applicant files with the licensing authority a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all applicable taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.
If a license granted pursuant to this act is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, the license shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location under the same conditions as specified in this act.
