Updated Indoor Safety Procedures: 

The safety of patrons, musicians, and staff is always of the utmost importance to us and because of this, the RPO has established updated protocols and procedures for your safety that follow CDC, state, county, and venue-specific guidelines, as well as the recommendations of our medical advisor. Our current policy, including full vaccination and wearing a mask at all times, will continue to be in effect for RPO concerts through June 11th 2022.

Key Protocol Changes Starting April 30th 2022:     

  • “Masking Optional” Seating is No Longer Available at Kodak Hall:  We will no longer be offering mask optional seating at this time. If you previously requested optional seating please call our Patron Services Center at 585-454-2100 for further assistance.

What to Know for Your Visit

  • We kindly ask and encourage patrons to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to show start to ensure a quick and smooth entry into the venue.
  • To shield you from the winter weather, we have brought vaccination and photo ID checks indoors. To help streamline your arrival, we ask patrons to enter through either the Main Street, Swan Street, or Gibbs Street doors. Please see the map of available entrances below to help plan your arrival.
  • East End Parking Garage, as indicated on the map above, is available for you to park during performances. Please read surrounding parking areas’ signage carefully if you choose to park elsewhere. Other lots may tow your car if parked illegally. For example, the Central Parking System garage on Chestnut Street closes prior to the end of the performance and will tow your car.
  • Betty’s Cafe will be closed. Food and drink, with the exception of water, will not be allowed in the theater.

Stay Home If You Are Sick or Unwilling to Comply with Protocols!

  • If you or a recent close contact are sick, experience CDC-recognized COVID-19 symptoms or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days, we ask that you prioritize community health and stay home.
  • If you do not wish to comply with these protocols, we kindly request that you remain at home. Audience members that do not comply with these protocols will be removed from the event.

Further updates are being considered and will be evaluated prior to April 30th, following the recommendations of our medical advisor, the CDC, New York State and Monroe County.
