As of 4/1/2022, masking is highly encouraged but no longer required.
Since the beginning of this pandemic The Grand Cinema has looked to state and local health authorities as well as our peers in the industry to help us navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In September 2021, The Grand Cinema, like almost all similar Washington art house theaters, as well as most sporting event centers, performing arts venues, and many restaurants, started requiring proof of vaccine for entry along with masking as a temporary safety measure, with reasonable exceptions.
Now, cases are on a downward trend and there is hope that the pandemic may be at an end stage. Based on new Washington State, King and Pierce County policies, guidance, and suggested best practices, we no longer require proof of vaccination for patrons or masking, although we still highly encourage folks to do so. We still require our staff and volunteers to be fully vaccinated.
Thank you for helping to keep our cinema-loving community safe for the short period of time during the high surge of cases over the last few months. We thank you for your support.
Other safety measures include:
Private Screenings are available. For those who are cautious to be amongst larger groups we also offer the option to see the current run of films in a theater to yourself for prices starting as low as $40. See our private screening page here.
