The Empire Theatres has a new Queensland Health approved seating plan that allows for COVID regulation spacing between patrons while maximizing the number of seats available at a performance.
The plan works by having two seats in use followed by two unoccupied seats. Therefore, patrons are encouraged to book tickets in multiples of two and your group will then be seated in pairs.
This previous plan which saw all bookings seated with social distancing in place allowed for a capacity of approximately 25%. The new ‘Honeycomb Seating’ plan allows the theatre to have 50% of the theatre in use, or up to 760 patrons at any one performance.
Patrons will still be required to provide their contact tracing details prior to a performance they are attending.
Please note all tickets purchased will be emailed in PDF format to the ticket purchaser approximately 48 hours prior to the performance due to COVID safe seating requirements. All patrons must provide their name, address, phone number and email before the performance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Increased hygiene facilities and social distancing measures are in place including COVID safe seating in the auditoriums, contactless payment preferred, and extensive contact tracing policies required for all patrons.
We encourage and support the use of the COVID Safe App. For more information on the Empire Theatre COVID Safe operations please visit the COVID Safe page of our website.
