Safety is our top concern

The following COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place upon attendance of any in-person screenings.

  • When booking tickets, ticketing software will automatically block off the seats in front of, behind and to the sides of your party to allow for safe social distancing.

  • Masks are required for entry into the Hilo Palace Theater and must be worn at all times while within the theater.

  • Hand sanitizing and contactless temperature checks are done upon arrival.

  • Festival attendees must follow proper social distance protocols.

  • Concessions will remain closed.

  • Festival attendees will be asked to immediately enter the auditorium and find their seats upon arrival.

  • There will be no step-and-repeat or photo opportunity set-up to reduce the urge to mingle in the lobby.

  • Bathrooms, lobby and shared spaces will be sanitized between screening blocks.
