Reopening of the BCRAC Theatres, Sayre Theatre
Reopening of the BCRAC Theatres
After 15 months of closure, the movies have returned to Bradford County in 2021 because of the ongoing and generous support of our community. Thank you!
All BCRAC theatres reopened on July 1 for first-run movies and blockbusters during the afternoon and evenings from Thursday to Sunday. Special events, including lectures, recitals, and limited screenings will be offered Monday-Wednesday.
One of the three screens at the Sayre Theatre has been rededicated as our Art and Culture Screen, to showcase a selection of independent, art-house, and foreign films as well as documentaries, which we have not been able to screen to the public in the past. We look forward to sharing some of the most acclaimed films from festivals such as Sundance and Cannes that have gone on to receive awards and recognition. Most importantly, these are films that inspire and challenge, reminding us of the magic of cinema. Please visit the Art and Culture Screen page for more information.
Regrettably, due to supply chain issues, the projector in the Dunn Center for the Performing Arts at the Keystone Theatre remains offline. We hope to have this projector repaired as soon as possible. Due to these space limitations, we strongly encourage you to purchase tickets in advance on this website.
Changes in ticket pricing
Ticket prices have been simplified for all first-run shows. Different rates apply for the Art and Culture Screen at the Sayre Theatre. Consider becoming a member to take advantage of reduced ticket prices along with other deals.
Please note all ticket prices are listed with a $2 Historic Preservation Fee already included.
The health and safety of our patrons, performers, and staff remains our first priority.
Vaccinated persons are not required to wear a mask in BCRAC theatres. However, we respectfully ask that any unvaccinated persons continue to wear masks while moving through the theatres.
What are we doing to minimize risk?
In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our internal and external guests, BCRAC has implemented enhanced environmental cleaning throughout our venues and offices. This includes:
•We are disinfecting surfaces, doorknobs, railings, and other common areas more frequently.
• Our staff are washing and disinfecting their hands frequently.
• We have made hand sanitizer available at each sales station.
• We are prohibiting any staff who are sick from working at the theater.
• Transition of all solvents to a disinfectant version in order to provide enhanced germ-free environments at every touch point
• Addition of hand sanitizers and tissues in the lobby.
• Installation of hand washing reminder signs in all of our restrooms
• Paper cups at all drinking fountains
How can you best ensure your safety and that of others in BCRAC venues?
• Do not attend a movie or performance if you are not feeling well and/or are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath
• Practice good respiratory etiquette (e.g., cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing) and throw away your tissues
• Wash and/or sanitize your hands regularly
• Respect social distance in seating choices
Feel free to ask any questions or express your concerns to staff or email email@example.com.
Finally, as a nonprofit arts organization, closing our doors to the public has meant a significant loss of revenue. While our reopening signals the reignition of business, the pandemic has made it even more difficult to maintain our beautiful, but aging, historic theatres and to keep them working for future generations. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us offset the lost revenue during our closure, please visit our Donate page.
