As The Grand prepares to reopen to the public, please know that the health and safety of our patrons, staff and volunteers is our biggest priority. Below is an abbreviated list of procedures we have in place to help protect our film-loving community. Please read the guidelines and procedures in full here.
  • Masks are mandatory.
  • Concessions stand is closed.
  • All employees and volunteers will be screened for symptoms.
  • Each theater will be limited to 25% capacity.
  • We have instituted assigned seating. Online tickets are highly recommended as we are operating at a reduced capacity. If you are purchasing tickets at the box office, we ask that you come prepared with a card for payment rather than cash.

Presented by the (mostly virtual) 15th Tacoma Film Festival, November 6–15, 2020. Explore the lineup and more at


If this is just a taste of what Brandon Cronenberg has in store for cinema, then long live the new flesh.

Cronenberg has a lot of high-minded ideas, but he grounds them in human behavior and has found the right humans to tell his story.
