Prior to entry all guests and permissible items may be subject to a physical screening and inspection. Prohibited items discovered during our screening process will not be allowed inside of the theater. Prohibited items include; weapons of any kind, bags larger than 16x16x8, outside food and beverages, laptop computers/electronics tablets, glass, metal, or plastic containers of any kind; including cans, bottles and flasks, etc. By presenting your ticket and entering our venue you consent to such screenings. Persons who refuse screening may be denied entry into our venues. These protection measures have been put in place to ensure that each performance or experience is occurring in a safe environment for our guests.

While these new procedures were designed with audience convenience in mind, it is highly recommended that guests arrive to these venues up to 45 minutes earlier than they have in the past, to ensure a timely entry into the venue for the start of the performance.
