IMPORTANT UPDATE- New Covid Requirements at the Bacon Theatre

The Bacon Theatre have confirmed the arrangements that will be in place to ensure the safety of all those attending our coming season of films.  These are detailed in the pamphlet below, with the main requirement being that entry will be restricted to only those who can provide proof of either full vaccination against Covid-19 or a negative lateral flow test within the prior 48 hours.

To facilitate the process, we have agreed to collect/validate members’ vaccination status, either in advance (members will be receiving an email from the Membership Secretary) or at their first film. This will be stored securely on our database, along with other personal information, and will allow us to then just record/check membership numbers at the door at each film rather than having to re-check vaccination status. Those members who have not been vaccinated will however require to show the required test result at each film that they attend.

We will do our best to make the membership number checking process as efficient as possible to avoid queueing at films.

Linked to the Bacon’s arrangements, we will also not be handing out film notes or reaction slips.  We will however be collecting film ratings and comments via GoogleForms as used successfully for last season’s screenings at The Cheltenham Playhouse.

We hope that all of our members will find the safety arrangements not too onerous, recognising that they are in the best interests of all involved given the use of a school based facility.
