Learn about all the CinemaSafe recommendations at

  • Masks Required All employees must wear a face covering or mask. Patrons must wear a face covering at all times, except as noted by the CDC and herein. Those who are unwilling to wear a face covering will be denied entry.
  • Reduced Capacity & Social Distancing Theater capacity reduced to minimize number of patrons in an auditorium. Appropriate physical distancing must be maintained at all times between patrons, except members of the same household or those that attend together. We will have a seating capacity of 25% = 44 people, seats will be blocked off using the “checkerboard” system to maintain a 6-foot distance.
  • Frequent Hand-washing Employees trained on hand-hygiene practices, and are required to wash hands frequently at easily-accessible hand-washing facilities.
  • Air Filtration Air scrubbers have been installed. Click to read about air scrubbers
  • Hand Sanitizer Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol (EPA approved ethanol or isopropyl) liberally placed in easily accessible public areas and patrons will be encouraged by staff and appropriately placed signage to practice hand hygiene.
  • Enhanced Cleaning Auditoriums carefully disinfected between movie screenings. High-touch surfaces wiped down periodically with EPA-registered disinfectant.
  • Modified Concessions Order and pay for concessions online as much as possible. Communal food and condiments that require shared serving utensils or equipment eliminated.
  • Mobile Ticketing Tickets sales available online or via phone to reduce the need to stand in line for tickets. Alternatives to paper tickets should be used whenever possible.
  • Not Feeling Well? Stay home. If you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or other symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, please stay home and we welcome you to join us again in the future.
