COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS
Thank you for reaching out! We are monitoring the situation closely, and in response we have just ordered 10,000 masks to have on hand for patrons who forget to bring their own. Masks will be highly encouraged for everyone inside the theater (except while actively eating concessions), and all of our volunteers and staff will be masked as well.
The State and Bijou upgraded their air filtration systems before reopening in November (you can read their full policy here), and the AMC Cherry Blossom follows the AMC Safe & Clean protocols, which includes HVAC and frequent cleaning in the theaters.
We expect patrons to monitor their health before coming to the movies. We will refund tickets for those who call or email us in advance to let us know they are unable to attend due to COVID exposure (though we hope you might consider giving the tickets to a friend instead!).
Free 2022 Traverse City Film Festival Bayline Shuttle
You can ride the free BATA Bayline shuttle between the Downtown Theaters (State and Bijou) and the AMC Cherry Blossom Theater. Park your car at a Park and Ride lot and eliminate the need to park downtown or move your car from one venue to another. Shuttles are ADA accessible and air-conditioned.
