COVID-19 Safety Policies & Guidelines

Montclair Film and The Clairidge are dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, staff, and the entire community.  We follow guidelines from the CDC and the State of New Jersey and will continue to update our policies as necessary.


  • Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons while in the venue except when actively eating or drinking.


  • Ticket scanning is touchless.  All tickets can be emailed to you and you may print them out at home or present them on a smartphone for scanning upon entry to a venue.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available in the lobby of each venue.  Please use them upon entry.
  • Each theater will be cleaned after every screening/event and high touch areas in the lobby and concession areas will be continually cleaned.
