Moviegoers could soon be spending even more for their popcorn and soda in the District if Mayor Vincent Gray wins his push for a 5 percent tax on movie theater concessions as part of an effort to build the first movieplex east of the Anacostia River.

Theaters also must collect an additional 10 percent tax on alcoholic beverages sold.
