    • Children who are vaccincated are not required to show Photo ID but we do encourage it if possible.
  • Tickets: We strongly recommend digital tickets to limit physical contact.
  • Security checks if applicable will be contactless.

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the venue.


  • Enhanced sanitization procedures will be implemented inside Centennial Concert Hall and common areas of the Centennial Centre.
  • Where possible, interior doors will be propped open to reduce touchpoints.


  • Only debit or credit cards will be accepted at point-of-sale locations.
  • You may take your beverage into the theatre.

The main foyer and side lobbies are supplied air through two air handlers with a combined capacity of 77,427 cubic feet per minute. This provides approximately 4.6 complete air changes per hour and the air is filtered by MERV-8 air filters. The air handler for the theatre seating area delivers 37,176 cubic feet of air per minute. This provides approximately 5.3 complete air changes per hour and the air is filtered by MERV-13 rated air filters. These filters suit our specific HVAC systems best. They allow the maximum amount of airflow and air exchanges to be achieved in our facility with the proper balance of filtration for our system. No two facilities are the same and every building will require a different approach, too much filtration will lower pressure and cause fresh air exchanges per hour to drop.


Patrons who experience symptoms of COVID-19, the flu or a cold should not enter the venue. If you or any household members have any symptoms of COVID-19, you should remain at home and plan to get tested as soon as possible.

We ask that you take the MB Government self assessment before arrival https://sharedhealthmb.ca/covid19/screening-tool/
