Having considered Government advice and feedback from the audience, the Trustees will be taking the following precautions to protect our audience and volunteers from infection.
We are currently limiting seats to about 50% of full capacity to allow extra space between groups separated by a table. Four wall mounted industrial ventilation fans will force fresh air in at one end of the hall and extract stale air at the other.
Tickets are available to be bought online and door sales will be minimised. The ticket store is at www.ticketsource.co.uk/rusthall-community-cinema where assigned seats may be reserved and paid for in advance. Those preferring to avoid online purchase may send an email to Tickets@RusthallCinema.club including a phone number where they will be called back within 48 hours to allow payment to be taken over the telephone.
If there is any chance that someone you have recently been close to may be carrying an infection please do not come to the Cinema. We will refund or exchange any tickets that are not used as a result of possible infection as long as notification is received before doors open.
Before entering the hall, visitors are asked to either
have had the third 'booster' vaccination or
have within the preceding 48 hours registered a negative LFT or PCR test with https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result or
tested positive within the previous 6 months.
On entering the hall please make sure you are wearing a properly fitted face mask that is kept on while standing and apply the provided sanitiser to your hands. Use the NHS COVID-19 app to ‘check into a venue’ or failing that, list the name and phone number of each person in your group on the contact sheet. This will be retained for 21 days and used for NHS Test and Trace only.
The volunteers at the box office table will then scan the QR code on your eticket (electronic or paper copy) before you are shown to your seat. If you would like to buy a raffle ticket or items from the catering table you may pay using a contactless card / chip & PIN or cash if you have no requirement for change.
Immediately after the film you are encouraged to join our discussion group in person or remotely via Zoom using https://tinyurl.com/RCC-discuss - further details are in the monthly newsletter and on our website.
