TRAVERSE CITY FILM FESTIVAL THE STATE & BIJOU
For those entering the STATE & BIJOU THEATERS, Traverse City, Michigan
The nonprofit Traverse City Film Festival is excited to be reopening our year-round theaters, the historic State Theatre and the Bijou by the Bay, after being forced to close for 20 months due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
Thank you for joining us in this collective effort to protect the health and welfare of all in the Traverse City region. The following are the rules and protocols regarding COVID-19 as set by the Board of Directors of the Traverse City Film Festival for the State and Bijou theaters:
Heatlh official and the State and Bijou cinemas emphasize that anyone who personally feels that they are at high risk or wishes to wear a mask for any other reason should.
SOCIAL DISTANCE SEATING and PROOF OF VACCINATION are NO LONGER required. We still ENCOURAGE everyone to get VACCINATED and BOOSTED.
Thank you for supporting our nonprofit downtown theaters and our fully vaccinated staff as to continue to negotiate an ever-changing environment.
Advanced air filtration, vaccination, fitted masks, temperature testing, social distancing, and extra cleaning cannot get us to zero risk. But these measures dramatically lower the potential for contracting COVID-19 in the theater. This is especially true if you wear an approved, correct-fitting mask. Together we can do our best to keep each other as safe as possible, to set an example of what it means to be a community — and to finally get out of the house and go see a movie, in the dark, on a huge screen, with awesome sound — and with real people!
Thank you for supporting your nonprofit movie theaters — historic landmarks restored beyond their original glory from when they were first built, some 87 and 106 years ago. You helped us rebuild, restore and reopen them over the past 15 years. Thanks to you we continue to present to the public the great American art form we know and love — The Movies!
