To ensure the safety of all patrons and guests, Gramercy Theatre has created the following code of conduct and policy guidelines. Please review and follow the rules and policies below as failure to abide by them may result in expulsion from the venue without refund. 

The Gramercy Theatre has several rules that guests must comply with throughout their visit. On arrival, all guests must pass through a security inspection. This may consist of metal detectors, bag inspections, and physical pat-downs.

Please note that re-entry is not permitted. You should bring any items you will need when you first arrive at the venue. Similarly, please try to arrive with time to spare – at certain performances, late arrivals may be held in the lobby until a suitable break in the event.

Accessibility Policy

Gramercy Theatre is a general admission venue, so while there are seats available in the loge, they are very limited availability. Other accommodations may be available and will be listed in the show description.

You are allowed to bring bags up to 12” x 6” x 12” in size to shows at The Gramercy Theatre. Smaller clutches up to 6” x 9” may also be allowed. All bags will be subject to a search — bringing clear bags helps make this process go as smoothly as possible.
