Getting back to business: further increases to theatre and cinema capacity

As part of the Framework for COVID-19 Safe Events and Activities in Tasmania introduced late last year, theatre and cinema capacity limits were able to increase to 75 per cent capacity, up to a maximum of 250 people.

Following further industry consultation, larger venues will be able to apply for an increased venue capacity up to 75 per cent above 250 people effective from 1 February 2021.

Importantly, the changes also recognise that those working in the arts and events sector are often highly experienced at planning for the management of large groups of patrons and the associated risks.

Venues who would like more information or to apply for an increase in capacity can contact Business Tasmania at:
