    Concession stands in movie theaters don't normally have names. The designer of the theater whose concession stand is shown in the picture thought it would look more elegant with an informative name over it. Maybe the theater has a separate counter for coffee or alcoholic beverages.

    No, just like "Tickets" isn't the name of the ticket counter.

    Saki6, FYI concession stands at large sporting events also sell alcohol in addition to junk food.
