COVID-19 Reopening Info

OPEN, SAFE, AND READY TO SEAT YOU We have been closely monitoring the ever-changing COVID-19 situation through the Governor’s office, our theater partners, and staying current with varying conditions.  That means we will be reopening the Theatre to films and performances, implementing a revised slate of entertainment, and welcoming patrons back inside our Theatre. Please understand that although we will be able to offer greater Theatre access, your experience may be slightly different, as we’ve implemented new health procedures to help limit the spread of the Coronavirus and meet the reopening guidelines of the State of Oregon. The following is our full plan for reopening.  This plan will be made available at the Theatre upon request.  Enjoy the show!
