Dear patrons of Cinematheque,

As you all are most likely aware, the Province of Manitoba is lifting all restrictions and mandates related to the COVID-19 pandemic by March 15. 

We have been discussing internally with our staff here at the Cinematheque and Winnipeg Film Group, trying to assess what is the best course of action to ensure the safety and comfort of our staff and patrons moving forward after the restrictions are lifted. We have decided that, for now, we will continue to require patrons to present QR code proof of vaccination along w/ valid government ID, and the use of masks in the Artspace lobby and Cinematheque theatre at all times, except while consuming concessions. 

It is not a decision that we’ve made lightly or without great consideration. However, if you do take issue with our decision and feel the need to express your opinion, we ask that you please direct it to cinematheque@winnipegfilmgroup.com, and do so in a calm, respectful manner.

The continued support of our patrons and the amazing team here at Cinematheque has gotten us through these difficult last two years. We couldn’t have done it without all of you. 

Thank you,

The Cinematheque Team
