Keeping Patrons, Staff, And Artists Safe While Ensuring Excellent Experiences Is Our Priority
The Grand is committed to providing a safe environment for all patrons, staff, and artists and the following security measures help to make that possible. We suggest you plan to arrive 30-45 minutes prior to curtain to allow enough time to get through security and find your seat. To make the process as smooth as possible, please consider leaving unnecessary personal items at home or securing them in the trunk of your car before entering The Grand Theater.
