Special COVID-19 Instructions
We want you to feel safe and comfortable in the theatre, so we are practicing the following safety measures:
We are currently limited to only 100 audience members in the theatre for each performance. Social distancing is being observed throughout the building and masks are required, including during the performance.
We request that you please try to arrive in good time to allow our ushers to seat everyone comfortably without getting a large gathering in the lobby.
We also request that you try to buy tickets in advance and collect them before the show for the same reasons.
Hand sanitizer is available throughout for your use.
Entrance & Accessibility
Please use the front entrance on (219)Main Street.
The Astor Theatre strives to be accommodating to those persons using mobility aids or requiring assistance. For your convenience there is a ramp and intercom located at the rear of the building, adjacent to the Royal Bank, which may be used to access the theatre. To gain access to the theatre use the intercom to alert the theatre staff and they will buzz you in. If you require a place for a wheelchair, please inform box office staff when purchasing your ticket(s).
Please note that use of cameras or any other audio/video equipment is prohibited during performances.
Please note that cell phone use is also prohibited during performances. Please turn your phone off when entering the theatre.
Smoking is prohibited inside and immediately around the Astor Theatre. Nova Scotia law also prohibits smoking within 4 metres of entrances, windows and air intakes.
Some patrons are sensitive or allergic to various scents and perfumes. Please limit your use of scented products before arriving at the theatre.
