The Bertha DocHouse screen is currently operating at 80% of its seating capacity. That means you will never be in a screening where every seat is occupied, and if, after the film has begun, you would be more comfortable in another unoccupied seat, you are welcome to move. We appreciate you being considerate of your fellow audience members and masks are encouraged. Happy viewing!
