As we have navigated the pandemic, the health and safety of our community has always informed our decision-making along the way.

All ticket-holders 12 years of age and older are required to provide proof they are fully vaccinated.

Upon arrival to the cinema, patrons must provide proof of vaccination in the form of a physical vaccination card or a photo of vaccination card (digital accepted) and it must match with photo ID. Final vaccine must be dated at least 14 days prior to date and showtime.

In accordance with our current policy and per the City of Winston-Salem mandate effective August 20, masks are required for all patrons when not actively eating or drinking at their seat. If you have a medical exception to the mask requirement, a negative COVID-19 test receipt from an official testing facility dated 48 hours or less prior to date and showtime with the patron’s full name matching photo ID will be accepted. Masks must completely cover the mouth and nose and must be worn at all times except when seated in theater and actively eating or drinking. Please respect our staff, volunteers and other patrons and always be masked appropriately when interacting.

All guests must stay at home if not feeling well or have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 10 days.

These policies are for the foreseeable future for all films and events held inside the cinema and are strictly enforced for the protection of our staff and guests. Our theater staff will monitor all screenings to ensure compliance. Management reserves the right to deny admission or dismiss any  customer for noncompliance with FLC policies. Outdoor events via a/ mobile are not included in this policy. Please continue to check our regular emails and website for any updates as this situation evolves and we respond accordingly.

We believe this policy will help keep our film loving community safe, our staff protected, and our doors open in this challenging time. Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support.

Along with the above we are currently seating the theaters at reduced capacity and continue to request guests maintain physical distancing practices in our theaters. Our additional safety protocols and procedures include:

We’ve made upgrades & adjustments to the cinema. 

a/perture cinema is proud to be one of more than 300 theaters committed to the CinemaSafe campaign, which promotes unified protocols and guidelines developed and supported by leading epidemiologists to support a safe return to movie theaters.

In addition to updating our staff procedures to include enhanced cleaning, hand sanitation stations, and PPE, we’ve also made adjustments to the cinema.

We use a cold fog sprayer device regular with a non-toxic EPA-approved disinfectant and an anti-microbial surface protectant to clean our theaters.

We’ve upgraded our HVAC units with a HALO-LED air purification system. This system will significantly reduce airborne and surface microbials, bacteria, viruses, and mold, as well as allergens, dust, and particulates.
