Covid Policy

Patrons are no longer required to wear masks when visiting our cinema, though we encourage patrons to wear masks for the safety and health of our staff. Masks are available upon request.

We are open 30 minutes prior to the first show time daily. Typically, Saturday and Sunday we are open before noon and Mondays through Fridays we are open by 3:30pm. In addition to regular theater concessions we also serve a variety of snacks from local companies, a great selection of beer choices and a full wine list which is curated seasonally.

To help provide a safe environment for both patrons and staff throughout our building, we have invested in new equipment for thorough sanitation and made adaptations to our overall HVAC systems to increase air ventilation, filtration and purifying.

In our screening halls and throughout the building, we’ve made significant adaptations to the building’s HVAC system in accordance with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommendations for non-healthcare buildings:

Ozone-free UV air scrubbers (HVAC-mounted Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI), which uses UV light with sufficiently short wavelengths to disinfect surfaces, air, and water) improved central air and other HVAC filtration to MERV-13* (as recommended by the CDC and ASHRAE;MERV ≥ 13 is efficient at capturing airborne viruses) increased outdoor air ventilation keeping all systems running 24/7 with fans always on *MERV stands for “minimum efficiency report value,” a scale used to report the effectiveness of air
