Greater capacity at theatres, cinemas and corporate events

Entertainment facilities including theatres, cinemas and concert halls across NSW will be able to increase their capacity to 50 per cent and corporate events at function centres will be able to welcome up to 300 attendees from next week. Theatre, cinema and concert goers can return to entertainment venues in greater numbers and corporate events at function centres can increase attendance, provided venues have COVID-Safe plans and adhere to public health requirements.

This is a major step forward to recovery for the performing arts sector, with entertainment facilities now able to sell tickets for seated events at 50 per cent of capacity, to a maximum of 1,000 tickets. The changes mean a boost to box office revenues for the hundreds of theatres, cinemas and concert halls across the state. For some it means reopening their doors.

Venue managers are invited to join Create NSW's webinar on Monday 28 September from 10am to discuss the changes. They will also be discussing a newly announced check in feature to the COVID-safe app making it quicker for guests to check-in at venues and help businesses stay safe against potential COVID-19 outbreaks.
