COVID-19 response: Movie theatres must close

Effective December 13, 2020 some businesses are required to close, reduce capacity or limit their in-person access. This includes movie theatres. These mandatory restrictions apply provincewide and will remain in place until further notice.

Theatres and other movie venues, otherwise known as exhibitors, were first allowed to reopen in June. They are encouraged to review these relaunch guidance documents developed by Alberta Health:

For general information, visit COVID-19 info for Albertans.

Film distributors who believe an Alberta film rating assigned to a feature film is unduly restrictive or inconsistent with ratings determined by other Canadian offices may apply for reconsideration.

Not all requests will result in a reconsideration screening. A request is automatically granted if the Alberta age-based rating is higher than any other 3 English-language Canadian classification offices.

There is no charge for a rating reconsideration.
