At Penn Cinema, safety has always been a top priority. Now more than ever, we’re committed to doing our part for our guests, our Teams and our communities.

Reduced Auditorium Capacity

All auditorium capacities will be reduced based on local and state guidelines.

Additionally, all locations will now offer Social Distance Seating. When booking online or in-theater, two seats will automatically be made unavailable on either side of your booking to ensure proper social distancing.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

All common areas and high touch surfaces including door handles, counters, touch screens, restroom fixtures, dispensers, auditorium seats will be routinely disinfected throughout the day using an EPA approved cleaner proven to combat COVID-19.

Additional time will be scheduled between shows to ensure proper cleaning and sanitation for each viewing.


Masks are an important part of helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. For your safety, our Team will be wearing masks at all times when in the building. For the safety of our Team and your fellow moviegoers, all guests over the age of 2 are required to wear masks or face coverings at all times in all common areas of the building including the lobby, corridors and restrooms. When seated inside the auditorium, guests are permitted to remove their mask to enjoy refreshments.

When wearing a mask or face covering is not possible for medical reasons, a face shield may be worn.
