COVID-19 Information

Welcome Back to The Cabot!

Effective Saturday, May 29th, in accordance with the Center for Disease Control, as well as state and city guidelines, those fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks inside.  Social distancing requirements have also been lifted.

We advise those who are unvaccinated and support anyone who feels more comfortable to continue to wear a mask. 

At The Cabot, we will continue to require our staff and volunteers to wear masks when working at events that are open to the public and we will continue to provide space between groups seated at our movies and events for the first half of June.

Mobile Ticketing 🞄 Not Feeling Well? Stay Home

Here’s what we are doing to keep you and our staff safe:  

  • We are following guidance issued by the Governor’s office listed here Archive: Sector-specific protocols and best practices and other guidance issued by the Board of Health, the CDC, and Cinema Safe.  
  • We have modified our capacity for movies to 350 and are using a new ticketing system that will maintain 2 seats between all groups while seated. 
  • There is no longer a limit on group size.  When purchasing movie tickets you will now be able to choose seats. Select the quantity you need by price type and location, and then select your seats from a map of available seating.  
  • Staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks and have been trained on the proper measures for use of PPE. 
  • The Cabot has invested in an air filtration system called iWave that uses patented needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) technology to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions.  When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds. When the ions come in contact with viruses, bacteria or mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules – without them, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die. This process is proven by independent laboratory testing to be both safe and effective.
  • We offer order-ahead, contactless concessions through the Noble App.  You will be able to pre-order your snacks and beverages a few days before the show and pick them up when you arrive at the theater at the time you choose.  Download the Noble App on your phone today or check the event page for the event you are attending for specific ordering options.
  • We will reassess often and continue to adjust protocols often as we open up further.

Here’s what we are asking you to do when you visit: 

  • If you are feeling sick, have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, loss of smell or taste, muscle aches, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, gastrointestinal issues) or if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive to COVID-19 within the last two weeks, please stay home!
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, please continue to wear a mask when entering the Cabot and while moving through any common areas. 
  • Hand sanitizer stations are placed throughout the theater. Please sanitize your hands upon entering the theater, and wash your hands frequently.  
  • Order concessions ahead of time via the Noble App.


What if I’m not ready to come back?

It’s okay if you’re not ready to come back. We’ll be here whenever you’re ready.  In the meantime you can watch movies and unique programming from home via our new Cabot To-Go app, coming soon! In the meantime, check out our list of virtual events you can enjoy from the comfort of your couch.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Masks are still required if you are not yet fully vaccinated.  Please wear one into the building and in all communal areas.  You may remove your mask while sitting in your seat when eating or drinking but please wear your mask while entering, exiting and if you visit concessions or the restrooms.

How are you keeping the theater clean?

The theater will be cleaned each day between events or film screenings, and high touch surfaces will be regularly sanitized throughout the day with stronger disinfectant products.
