For select special events, as indicated on a film’s event page, patrons are required to wear face coverings and must also present a 72-hour (or less) negative COVID-19 test for each individual attending the event. We will accept documentation of a vaccine card in lieu of a negative COVID-19 test. This policy will be enforced at special events, as indicated, until further notice.

Expanded Health Policies for Special Events

FilmScene encourages vaccinations for all guests, embraces masking as a public health tool, and requests ticket buyers stay home and request a refund if exhibiting symptoms of illness.
Certain special events, which may include 100% capacity screenings, filmmaker visits, or catered receptions, will include additional wellness precautions.

About Our COVID-19 Safety Policy

During this period of ongoing fluctuations in public health status, FilmScene is implementing additional wellness policies for special events to ensure viability. Such policies are necessary to confidently proceed with these events. We appreciate the ongoing commitment of our patrons and community to a positive public health environment as we navigate these challenging times.
