Dear Bookshelf Community,
Thank you for your continued support! The Bookstore has been thrilled to provide Guelph and its surrounding area with books, games and wine through the various stages of the pandemic.
With the re-opening of the Bookshelf Cinema on Friday, September 17th, we look forward to welcoming you back to our upper level for lovely afternoons and lively evenings of film and refreshments! We're putting the finishing touches on plans to open this Friday. As of 4:00pm today advance tickets are available for all shows of The Hidden Life of Trees and Best Sellers, Sept 17-23.
Just a reminder about our current ticket prices: General admission (including seniors and students) is $13.00 + $1.00 service fee =$14.00, Members admission is $10.00 + $1.00 =$11.00.
In accordance with Federal and Provincial health guidelines, the Cinema will be operating at reduced capacity, with 50 seats per show available to patrons. Pre-purchased tickets are encouraged and will be sold in person or by phone through the Bookstore. Some tickets may also be available in the Cinema Box Office a half hour before showtime.
To ensure everyone’s safety, the Bookshelf is:
* Routinely sanitizing high contact areas in the Cinema, Greenroom and washrooms
* Providing sanitizer for patrons’ use
* Cordoning off portions of Cinema seating to assist with social distancing
* Equipped with upgraded, Merv-13 air filters with separate HVAC for each area of the building
For the safety and comfort of staff and patrons, all Cinema attendees must:
* Present proof of identification and vaccination at the point of entry to the Cinema (vaccine receipt info can be found here)
* Provide a name and phone number for contact tracing
* Wear a mask at all times when not seated in the Greenroom lobby or Cinema
* Allow for three seats of space between parties within the Cinema for socially distanced viewing
We're looking forward to seeing everyone, safe and sound, in the cinema.
