Though CinemaSafe promotes state guidelines and protocols. At this time, we found it necessary to go beyond and update standards specifically for the Avalon Theater. As Covid cases continue to rise, the safety of our patrons and staff remains our highest priority. To ensure everyone's safety and maintain our service standards amidst staff shortages, we have updated our Covid protocols.
The Avalon will operate at 50% capacity leaving ample space between groups.
Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status, except when actively eating or drinking.
Practice social distancing between other guests and staff as often as possible.
To avoid cash handling, we encourage you to buy your tickets in advance online via our website. If you plan to purchase your tickets on-site, please bring your debit or credit card.
To continue a safe contactless experience, we encourage you to order all of your food and snacks from your mobile phone once you're seated in the theater. Simply scan the provided QR code and place your order.
WELCOME BACK TO THE MOVIES!
CINEMASAFE IS A PROGRAM PROMOTING PROTOCOLS AND GUIDELINES DEVELOPED AND SUPPORTED BY LEADING EPIDEMIOLOGISTS TO SUPPORT A SAFE RETURN TO MOVIE THEATERS.
WITH RAPID IMPROVEMENTS IN COVID-19 CASE RATES, INCREASINGLY WIDESPREAD VACCINATIONS, AND RECENT CDC GUIDANCE THAT VACCINATED PEOPLE NO LONGER NEED TO WEAR MASKS OR SOCIALLY DISTANCE, THE MOVIE THEATER INDUSTRY WILL CONTINUE TO MEET OR EXCEED STATE AND LOCAL PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES.
FOLLOWING STATE AND LOCAL GUIDELINES, WE ARE NOW OPERATING AT 100% CAPACITY.
THE CDC CONTINUES TO RECOMMEND MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING FOR UNVACCINATED PEOPLE.
HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE READY TO RETURN TO THE AVALON:
TO AVOID CASH HANDLING, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BUY YOUR TICKETS AHEAD OF TIME ON OUR WEBSITE, AVALONMKE.COM. IF YOU PLAN TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS ON-SITE, PLEASE BRING YOUR DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD.
WE HAVE A RESERVED SEATING SYSTEM AND ALLOW FOR AMPLE SPACE BETWEEN GROUPS WHEN POSSIBLE.
TO CONTINUE A SAFE CONTACTLESS EXPERIENCE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO ORDER ALL OF YOUR FOOD AND SNACKS FROM YOUR MOBILE PHONE AHEAD OF TIME OR ONCE YOU'RE SEATED IN THE THEATER. SIMPLY SCAN THE PROVIDED QR CODE AND PLACE YOUR ORDER.
TO PROTECT OUR STAFF AND PATRONS, GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS AT ALL TIMES IF THEY ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED, EXCEPT WHEN EATING OR DRINKING. IF YOU FORGET TO BRING YOURS, WE’LL HAVE THEM AVAILABLE FOR A NOMINAL CHARGE. IF A GUEST DISPLAYS SIGNS OF ILLNESS DURING A SCREENING LIKE PERSISTENT COUGHING OR SNEEZING, WE WILL CHECK ON THEM. IF THEY APPEAR TO BE SICK, WE WILL INVITE THEM BACK AT ANOTHER TIME.
STAFF MEMBERS HAVE BEEN VACCINATED. WE CONTINUE TO PRACTICE ENHANCED SANITATION PROCEDURES IN ALL PARTS OF THE BUILDING. WE REQUIRE FREQUENT HAND WASHING AND HAND SANITIZER STATIONS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. WE CONTINUE TO DEEP CLEAN AND DISINFECT THE AUDITORIUM BETWEEN SHOWS. OUR KITCHEN, CONCESSION STAND, BATHROOMS, AND OTHER HIGHLY TRAFFICKED AREAS WILL ROUTINELY RECEIVE THE SAME DEEP CLEAN TREATMENT.
WE ARE A FIREARM FREE FACILITY, AND PREFER ALL LARGE PURSES OR BACKPACKS BE LEFT AT HOME. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INSPECT ANY CARRY-INS.
