What is the Theatre’s Security Policy?

We suggest that all patrons arrive as early as possible and bring minimal personal belongings to the Theatre. Patrons will be required to walk through metal detectors at all entrances. Patrons will not be required to empty their pockets or remove anything prior to passing through the metal detectors. All patrons entering the Theatre are subject to search at the discretion of management, which may include a pat down or scans with metal detector wands. All bags are subject to search; bags that pass inspection must fit comfortably under a seat. Backpacks, diaper bags or bags larger than 12 x 12 x 6 inches are not allowed inside of the theater. Laptops, briefcases, suitcases, and outside food and beverages are not allowed in the building. Patrons will be asked to return non-approved bags or other prohibited items to their vehicle prior to theatre entry. Any items confiscated will not be returned. The Theatre does not provide an area to check coats or any personal belongings. 

BBMannPAH management reserves the right to change the security policy or implement any security measures required for any performance without advance notice.
