Victoria Film Festival | Covid-19 Protocols


No Close Encounters of Any Kind


Due to recent findings of the epidemiological variety we are now requiring masks in the theatre.


Masks, of course, can be removed during the munching of popcorn or the slurping of wine or soda.  Oh yes, and beer too.

Please do not enter The Vic Theatre if you have the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • New or worsening cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • New muscle aches or headache
  • Sore throat
  • Have travelled outside of Canada within the last 14 days
  • Are in close contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19


  • Credit or debit cards with tap are preferred to cash.
  • The number of seats available per screening are 50 and you will be selecting from the available pool of seats if you are buying your ticket at the door.
  • Seats are disinfected between screenings.
  • Washrooms are disinfected between screenings.
  • Concession is disinfected between screenings.
  • Popcorn is made and served by a person in mask and gloves.

The Queen suggests that you reserve a seat in advance.

By purchasing your ticket early, you guarantee you’ll have one, of only 50 seats, reserved for you AND your experience at The Vic Theatre will be contactless – except when your derriere hits the comfort of the seat cushion.


Please choose a seat appropriate to the number of people in your party.  For example, if you are flying solo please be kind to the Queen and do not pick the seats that are for 2 or more side by side.


The Queen strongly recommends that you use the facilities at home before you come to the theatre. We clean and disinfect The Vic Theatre washrooms before and between film screenings but our washrooms are not a contactless experience.


Please wash your hands or clean them with hand sanitizer before and after you visit and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres.

Thank you to everyone for your incredible support as we move forward into our “new normal.”

Be out, be in, but be safe.
