In consultation with the City of Minneapolis, State of Minnesota, and Sundance Institute, we are limiting seating to 70 for each screening. This is 10% of the seating capacity at the Riverview—and below the current City and State limits (25% capacity with a maximum attendance of 150). To further ensure safety, masks will be required to be worn at all times while inside the Riverview Theater, concessions will not be sold, and outside food will not be allowed. Staff will be on site to ensure that all safety protocols are followed and we reserve the right to require anyone not following these protocols to leave the venue immediately.

We are following NATO CinemaSafe guidelines for all screenings, which can be found here:

Disclaimer: given the ever-changing situation, screenings could be canceled at any time if deemed unsafe. This decision is solely at the discretion of FilmNorth and the Riverview Theater. In this event, FilmNorth will fully refund any ticket purchases.
