Health & Safety

These guidelines are subject to change.

Is The Henry Ford implementing staff safety procedures at the Giant Screen Experience?
Yes. The Giant Screen Experience will be following safety guidelines including the use of masks and gloves by GSE staff (Guest Service Associates scanning tickets and distributing 3D glasses will wear a face shield along with a mask), plexiglass barriers at the concession stand, socially distanced queuing to enter the theater, assigned seats, and enhanced cleaning of common areas and high-touch surfaces.

The Giant Screen Experience is a single-screen, high quality theater that is well-staffed from the start of each movie to the end. Our Guest Services Associates work in multiple areas of The Henry Ford including the Museum and Village and have been extensively trained in keeping guests safe all summer.
Are there reduced capacities for the Giant Screen Experience?
Yes – capacity is limited to 20% for each film. During the film, a minimum of three seats will be reserved in between each party; seating will be available every other row.
Do I need to wear a face mask?

Face masks and coverings are optional for fully vaccinated guests. Guests are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their final COVID-19 vaccination dose.

Unvaccinated guests, age 2 and up, are required to wear masks for the duration of their visit to Giant Screen Experience and may only temporarily remove their mask while eating concessions.
