VARIETY PREVIEW ROOM

WE'RE HELPING YOU HOST YOUR NEXT EVENT SAFELY

 

We have all new operating procedures to ensure the safety of you, your guests and our staff.

During the shelter in place time, we collaborated with our industry partners to develop standards that will replace all previous policies and will continue to be updated as science informs us.

We thank you for your continued support of the Variety Preview Room. Your rental fee funds our mission to help delayed, disabled and disadvantaged children in need.

PHASE 2 will allow for additional seating in the theater and small receptions/use of lounge. Concessions and catering allowed on a limited and case by case basis.

PHASE 3 will be a full return to capacity in both the theater and lounge, but will continue to adhere to safety guidelines and cleaning practices.

PHASE 1: SEATING CHART 25% OCCUPANCY

  • Located inside a historic 105 year old building, the access to our suite is on the first floor in the lobby and guests need not share an elevator or use stairs. 

  • The theater, lounge and en-suite restrooms are for your use only, not in a mixed-use or "public" setting.

  • We have our own independent HVAC system separate from the building, so our heating, cooling and air filtration are not recirculated through a mixed system, instead it is a system housed up on the roof of the exterior of the building directly venting and extracting into and out of our venue. Since the North Bay fires, we began using charcoal/carbon air filters eliminating particulates and creating cleaner air in our venue.

  • Occupancy & distancing; maximum occupancies limited to 25% of rated capacity.  Black-out of alternating aisles to create forward and rear spacing of minimum 6ft. Automatic two-seat spacing between groups to create right and left spacing of minimum 6ft. Maximum of five (5) guests per single group.

  • In addition to social distancing practices, we can also accommodate bookings from early morning, anytime during the day and all evening to space out bookings to accommodate you and to ensure cleanings are completed between screenings & presentations. 

GUESTS

  • Staff must maintain non-fever temp. for a period of 3-DAYS prior to returning to work.
