Keeping You Safe


Our priority is, and always has been, providing a safe and fun environment for watching movies.​

Cinema Cafe is a partner of NATO and the Cinema Safe initiative. Read more here.



Ticketing & Distancing:

•   All Cinema Cafe locations will now offer reserved seating online.

•   To ensure social distancing, automatic two-seat spacing between parties to create minimum 6 ft. on either side has been implemented, in addition to the built-in 7 ft distancing between rows.

•   Parties of 2 or more from the same household may sit together.





Cleaning & Sanitizing:

•   We will make certain that our restrooms are clean and in good repair. Restrooms will be checked and cleaned frequently. Additional detail cleaning will occur overnight and again checked before opening.

•   High-contact surfaces (door handles, counter tops, faucets, railings, etc.) will be wiped down with sanitizing agents regularly.

•   Handwashing: All crew members must properly and frequently wash their hands. Hands must be washed between any and every change of gloves.



Physical Distancing: Floor decals and signage will be used and placed 6 ft. apart to designate where people should stand and wait in line for tickets.



Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): All crew members must wear the required PPE and adhere to all CDC recommended standards of use of such equipment at all times. Protective equipment will be provided by Cinema Cafe at no cost to crew members.


Symptom Disclosure: Crew will be asked upon entry, if in the past 14-days, have they or anyone in their household experienced any symptoms of illness such as fever, chills, shortness of breath, or sore throat. Crew members showing symptoms of illness must remain at home and will not be allowed back at work for a minimum of 14 days with medical clearance.



Food Service & Menus: Menu may be slightly limited, and is subject to change based on availability of supplies. Disposable paper menus will be provided. Guests can also view the full menu online at

How You Can Help

Reduce your touch points: Buy Tickets Online

Maintain a 6ft distance between you and other guests when buying or picking up tickets, and as you exit the theater.

Guests (age 2 and up) are required by Virginia Executive Order to wear masks when they are not eating or drinking, including: entering, exiting, traveling through, and spending time inside a Cinema Cafe location.

We are eager to open our doors once again, continue to support our communities, provide employment to our crew members, and provide the fun, safe environment that Cinema Cafe is known for.
