COVID Safety Policy

The Little is committed to doing its part to keep everyone safe, to be able to enjoy movies and music, together in the theatres and cafe. We hope you will do the same, and encourage your friends and family to get vaccinated and wear masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

August 26 update: Starting Monday, August 30, The Little will be using two COVID-precautionary methods, one for each building:

L1 Proof + Mask

Little Theatre 1

PROOF OF FULL VACCINATION
AND MASK REQUIRED

All public events and special screenings in Little Theatre 1 (L1) will require all audience members — as well as panelists, guests, and staff — to present the following items before entry:

  1. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
  2. A valid photo ID (matching your name on your vaccination proof.)
  3. Be wearing a mask to enter the building.

 

PROOF OF VACCINATION

You must bring a valid vaccination card, NYS Excelsior Pass, or equivalent — as well as photo ID — to be allowed in the theatre. NO EXCEPTIONS. (We cannot just take your word for it! So do NOT forget!)

Valid forms of proof-of-full vaccination are:

  • Your vaccination card (and photo ID)
  • A photo of your vaccination card (and photo ID)
  • A New York State (NYS) Excelsior Pass, or Pass Plus (and photo ID)
    • Register at: https://epass.ny.gov/home (just a few simple questions)
    • Then download the “NYS Wallet” app from your smart phone’s app store, to scan a QR code and sync your data from computer-to-phone.
    • The whole thing takes less than 5 minutes!

Please have your identification ready to check-in at the front door of the theatre. We will not admit you without your vaccination proof!

Children 12 and under are strongly discouraged from attending. Any children in attendance will be required to wear a mask at all times.

MASK

A mask is also required to attend, and must be covering your nose AND mouth.

Masks must be worn to get in the building, and in all lobby / common areas. Masks may be removed when you are in your seat, to eat or drink. But we kindly (and firmly!) ask that you wear a mask at all other times.

L2 Mask

Little Theatre 2-5 + Cafe

MASK REQUIRED

All general screenings in Little Theatres 2-5 (L2-5) as well as The Little Cafe (including live music) will require all audience members — as well as panelists, guests, and staff — to be wearing a mask to enter the building, regardless of vaccination status.

 

MASK

A mask is also required to attend, and must be covering your nose AND mouth.

Masks must be worn to get in the building, and in all lobby / common areas. Masks may be removed when you are in your seat, to eat or drink. But we kindly (and firmly!) ask that you wear a mask at all other times.

Additional Precautions

What We Are Doing

Theater Capacity: The Little will be adhering to state guidelines on theater capacity.

Air filtration: The Little Theatre has reviewed and upgraded its air filtration systems to comply with the mandatory New York State guidelines. Additional air purifiers are run in both buildings, throughout the day.

Sanitization: There will be increased cleanings of theaters, bathrooms, concessions, surface areas, etc. Seating will start half an hour before the listed start time to allow for proper cleaning and sanitization. Your patience is appreciated.

Private Rentals and Events

Individual events, rentals, and screenings by outside parties may choose to enforce stricter guidelines on their event. Please carefully read all event and screening information to understand your responsibility as an audience member, in this changing time.

The Little continues to follow safety guidelines from the state, county, and health experts. This is a fluid situation, and as a result, these procedures are subject to change. Check back for guideline updates prior to visiting The Little.
