The photographing and sound or video recording of the actual performances inside the theatre, without the written permission of the management, is prohibited. Offenders may be ejected and liable for damages.
Your use of a ticket constitutes acknowledgement of willingness to appear in photographs, video and film taken in public areas of the Ford Theatres and releases the Ford Theatres, its lessees and all others from liability resulting from use of such images.
Smoking is permitted only in the following designated areas:
• The aisle A side exit door landing one level below concessions

Designated smoking areas are clearly marked with signage. Smoking is prohibited anywhere else on the premises. For assistance, please ask an usher.
