What to Know Before You Go
Most Classic Cinemas' Illinois locations reopened Friday, June 26th. The Lake in Oak Park and Meadowview in Kankakee will open later this summer, and the Tivoli reopening date will be determined when capacity increases.

We understand if you aren’t comfortable coming back quite yet, but if you are ready for a movie outing, please read our health and safety measures below that we have put in place to ensure your moviegoing experience is a fun and safe one. 
We’re continuing to update protocols based on the latest CDC and government recommendations. Here’s what to expect when you visit:
Limited Seating
Auditorium capacity will be limited to 50% with a 50 person cap based on state guidelines. Staggered showtimes will help eliminate lobby congestion.

Distance between Groups
Auditoriums with luxury recliner seating:
Rows are already more than six feet apart, but leave two seats between your party and other guests when reserving your seats. We recommend reserving online prior to arrival.

Auditoriums with our standard seating:
Every other row will be blocked off and we ask that guests leave three seats between parties. We recommend purchasing online prior to arrival.

Increased Service
Gloved and masked staff members will assist guests to eliminate high-touch tasks like self-serve drinks and popcorn topping. New containers will be provided for free refills.

Employee Screening
All employees must pass a health and temperature screening prior to their shift. They wear masks and gloves throughout their shift.

Improved Air Quality
The fresh air intake of our HVAC systems have been increased 50% to 100%. We are transitioning from commercial grade air filters that trap 90% of particles up three grades to one that traps over 95% of particles. Our vacuums have always used HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters that trap at least 99.7 percent of microscopic particles.

Vigilant Sanitation
Showtimes are staggered with longer intermissions so we can disinfect seats after every showtime. We have increased cleaning procedures and dedicated staff members focused on the task. Hand sanitizer is also available for guests.
Please be considerate of our employees and other guests. Follow these requirements:
  • Stay home if you or others around you have been sick.
  • Wear a mask until seated.
  • Follow posted signs and physical distancing markings.
  • Consider purchasing tickets online.
  • Use touch-free payment in the theatre when possible.
As with other public areas, we ask that guests practice common safety procedures.
  • Stay home if you or others around you have been sick
  • Consider purchasing tickets online before arriving
  • Wear a mask until seated - this is required
  • Follow posted signs and physical distance markings
  • Use touch-free payment in theatre when possible

If someone is not wearing a mask, please let us know and we will resolve the situation.
