Victoria Film Festival | The Vic Protocols

The Vic Protocols

We’re back June 12!

And we sure as heck are looking forward to seeing you.  Personally, I can’t wait to settle down into a seat and have the lights dim and the film roll. Sigh…

Our Vic Theatre Manager has been getting ready to welcome you back, he’s been painting and cleaning in anticipation of seeing your happy film faces.   We are confirming films and are planning for a fun selection of new and retro titles.  Come join us and travel around the world from the safety of The Vic.

Please do not enter The Vic 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

Before You Come

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 will be contactless – well except when your derriere hits the comfort of the seat cushion.

New option:  Order concession items online including our delicious Popcorn made with Organic Coconut Oil and have it ready for pick up when you arrive – no waiting In line!

  • 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 3 or 4 in the same row.


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


For our film lovers, please wash your hands or clean them with hand sanitizer before and after you visit.

Please maintain physical distancing of 2 metres.

While You’re Here

Credit or debit cards with tap are preferred to cash unless, of course, if you can pay in gold doubloons.

Seats are disinfected between screenings.

Washrooms are disinfected between screenings.
