To ensure every precaution is met, Picture Show, in concert with the National Association of Theatre Owners and state and local health officials, has planned and executed an abundance of operational adjustments and safety measures including but not limited to; plexiglass barriers to reduce contact between team members and guests, enforcing and maintaining a six foot physical distance in all areas of the theater including lobby and auditoriums marked with floor signage and safely spaced luxury recliner seating. Picture Show is also a proud partner of CinemaSafe. This program, commissioned by the National Association of Theatre Owners, puts the health and safety of our guests and employees at the center of movie theater operations across the country and we are proud to meet and exceed all of these voluntary protocols.

Additionally, guests visiting the theater will be required to wear a face covering when in the lobby, concession areas, restrooms and hallways.
