When attending a performance at the Kingston Grand Theatre, patrons can feel safe and comfortable knowing that we are taking measures to protect you and our community. 

As of September 22, the Ontario Government requires individuals over the age of 12 to be fully vaccinated and provide their paper or digital proof of vaccination status, along with photo ID, to attend performances, meetings, events, and access restaurants. More details here.  

Patrons of Kingston Grand Theatre must show proof of vaccination or exemption upon entry. When you come to the Theatre, please bring:  

  • Government-issued photo ID 

  • Record of vaccination or letter of medical exemption. Records may be provided on paper or on your phone. 

  • Tickets  

On October 9, 2021, the Ontario Government with the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health announced a lifting of capacity limits to allow for 100 percent capacity for select indoor and outdoor settings where proof of vaccination is required. This includes concert venues, theatres, and cinemas. Details here.  

The Kingston Grand Theatre will be following a phased reopening from October – December 2021 in terms of capacity limits for audiences. Some shows may provide physical distancing, and may not have intermission or concession sales. As of January 1, 2022, all shows will be sold to 100 percent capacity with no physical distancing. Masking is required for all shows. 

We will continue to observe all provincial-mandated safety protocols and do everything we can to provide a safe and meaningful return to the theatre. All visitors will be required to follow these additional safety requirements:

  • Sanitize hands upon entry; and 

  • Always wear a mask.
