The Empire is open and following all NSW Health and Safe Work Australia guidelines. We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place, and have received a ‘We’re COVID Safe’ tick from the NSW Government.
Seating capacity has now been reduced by 50% - well beyond the 25% capacity reduction required by NSW Health, so our patrons are safer and feel more comfortable.
All patrons are asked to maintain social distancing, and if showing any symptoms, stay at home!
Floor markings and hand sanitizer stations have been installed at the cinema entrance, and throughout the building, and we have contact tracing in place for the foreseeable future. All patrons must provide their name and phone number with ticket purchase.
All cinemas are cleaned and sanitised between every session.
All staff have temperature checks daily and are trained and certified in COVID-19 infection control, and have been trained to follow all health guidelines.
Online ticketing is available and encouraged, as is contactless payments wherever possible.
We would like to thank all of our patrons for their understanding during this time and look forward to welcoming you back to The Empire!
Together we can fight against COVID-19.
