The company is even exploring the possibility of separate streaming services for its Star Wars and Marvel superhero films.

Beale Street doesn’t need a cover charge, with or without rebate coupons, to solve its problems. Two summers into the policy, and after several crowd stampedes in the entertainment district before it, Beale needs a better security plan that probably includes a mix of Memphis Police and private security. But linking that to a cover charge, and the resulting checkpoints to enforce it, is sending the wrong message at the wrong time.

Saturday night on Beale Street is more than a catch phrase for businesses there.
