We've made changes to ensure the safety of our guests and staff
Starting September 22, anyone attending movies at The Apollo will need to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of the Ontario government’s Vaccine Certification Program.
Audience members will need to provide a paper or .pdf copy of their vaccine receipt, along with photo ID, in order to show that they received their second dose at least 14 days prior to the day they’re attending. This does not apply to those under the age of 12.
Apollo Classic Annual Members and Film Circle Members will only be required to show their proof of vaccination at their first visit. Confirmation of vaccination status will be attached to each member record and checked at each visit. Photo ID will be required.
Please come early to your showing! This will allow our staff adequate time to ensure that guests are seated in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
Doors for all shows open 30 minutes prior to any given screening.
When able, please use Debit/Credit to purchase concession snacks. We will be using sanitizer to clean Debit/Credit terminals between customers.
As per Waterloo Region By-law 20-035, masks will be required within The Apollo Cinema lobby and theatre until the film has started. Once everyone is seated and the film has started you will be able to remove your mask to enjoy concessions. Please ensure that you re-affix your mask before leaving your seat.
Please purchase group tickets in the same transaction and make sure that you sit in the designated seat as indicated on your ticket.
We have done the following:
added plexiglass shields at our Box Office and Concession
added physical distancing markers for our line-up areas
decreased our seating from 300 to 150 persons
blocked seating within the theatre via our ticketing system to ensure distancing
require name & email address to provide contact tracing if required
updated our debit terminals to ensure tap is available on all machines
added additional cleaning precautions to our daily checklists including: • regular sanitizing of high contact areas (door handles, debit terminals, etc) • extended time between showtimes to disinfect washrooms, concession, box office, and the theatre
retrained staff to ensure understanding and proper deployment of safety protocols
