The Dome Theater and COVID-19 Precautions

We will have a limit of 59 seats per showing to allow for proper social distancing.

The theater’s stair railing, doors and chairs will be cleaned after every show, and the entire theater will be sanitized at least twice per day.

We do ask that you please pick up your empty soda bottles, candy wrappers, etc. when you exit the theater. This effort will help keep all safe and healthy.
