An official account for the franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion has cautioned fans against drinking during the latest film Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time.
The official Twitter account @UN_NERV (NERV is the fictional agency responsible for the EVA units in the film) cautioned viewers against overindulging before and during the latest Evangelion film.

“Shin Eva will finally start tomorrow, but I have one thing to tell you! !!
“We recommend that you do not drink drinks” (personal impression)
The screening time is long, so be sure to eat and drink sparingly.
Everyone, be in good shape tomorrow and don’t miss a frame!”

The warning seems to be more out of concern that fans will miss vital scenes if they have to leave their seat to use the restroom. This is further reinforced by the announcement that the screentime is 2 hours and 35 minutes (bumped to 50 minutes in theaters due to previews and other theater eccentricities).
The latest Neon Genesis Evangelion film was anticipated to premiere earlier in January 2021 but was delayed until March 8th due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
