In preparation for opening, Emagine Theatres underwent a thorough cleaning and disinfecting program and instituted a variety of protocols to ensure the cleanliness of the venue for employees and guests, as well as new social distancing procedures. Emagine has taken great measures to ensure a clean and comfortable movie-going experience for its guests. The health of its employees and its movie-goers is a top priority for Emagine, and accordingly, that goal was the underpinning in developing its guidelines. A complete list of protocols is included below.
Guests will notice quite a few strategic measures taken in accordance of CDC, WHO and local authority health department guidelines. Prior to opening, Emagine has done an overall deep cleaning of the entire building with CDC approved products. This cleaning regimen will become common practice and performed continuously at all Emagine locations. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance through Emagine’s website or app, which will allow them to select seats and provide contactless ticketing. Before entering the theatre, there will be signs asking guests to refrain from entering the theatre if they have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19. Emagine is also requesting that all guests respect social distancing guidelines and encourage the wearing of masks by guests while in the lobby and restrooms. In addition, Emagine will provide masks for any guests, upon request. Emagine’s lobby will have directional signage and graphics to remind guests to remain 6 ft apart at the box-office, concession stand, self-serve soda station, restrooms, and queueing lines. Hand sanitizer stations will be available at numerous locations throughout the building. Restrooms will have restrictions on capacity and have signage to remind guests to `socially distance while inside. In addition to arranging furniture to respect social distancing in the lobbies, Emagine has also adjusted the auditorium seating to allow for restricted capacities that are mindful of social distancing guidelines. As guests enter the auditoriums to find their seats, there will be one staircase to go up and another staircase for those leaving the auditorium, and one-way aisle traffic will be encouraged. There will be increased time frame between all showings to allow for thorough and intense cleaning between all showtimes. Employees will also clean and disinfect high traffic areas more frequently and exit doors will be propped open to reduce common touchpoints.
Emagine has also adopted a return to work action plan with health and cleanliness protocols for employees that will include wearing masks and gloves while working. All employees will be required to complete and sign a COVID-19 Daily Screening Form answering questions regarding possible exposure to COVID-19.
