General Info:

Maximized Fresh Air Flow & MERV 13 Filters.
Fresh, outdoor air is constantly circulated in our theatres by opening HVAC dampers, running supply fans and by running exhaust fans. Our filtration systems have also been upgraded beyond the industry standard of MERV 8 to MERV 13 filters. MERV 13 filters capture the tiniest of droplets, which could contain the COVID-19 virus.

HEPA Filter Vacuums.
Every night, we vacuum carpeted areas using vacuums with HEPA filters, which are proven to trap 99.97% of airborne particles.

Hand Sanitizer.
Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol (EPA approved ethanol or isopropyl) is placed in easily accessible public areas and patrons are encouraged to practice hand hygiene.

Heavy Cleaning.
Every night after close, all auditoriums, lobby, concession areas, bathrooms, common areas well mopped with Clorox and EPA-registered disinfectant. Heavy touch points are cleaned and sanitized with EPA-registered disinfectant.
