 From the Queen….

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.

The Queen asks that you not congregate in the lobby unless you are purchasing items from the concession.

The Queen says please stay with your group and maintain physical distancing from other parties as much as possible.

The Queen suggests you buy a popcorn and a beverage to enjoy while you relax and watch the movie.

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

Be out, be in, but be safe.
