I really appreciate the rules towards ensuring COVID safety - requiring vaccinations and boosters, masks required indoors at all times - but it's not gonna help if you don't enforce.

Look at the photo on Facebook "Watching Iké Boys at the @somerville_theatre. "

7 people not wearing masks, out of a group of around 40.

Totally agree. I recognize enforcing the policy can be difficult (and given how some people react to things these days, even potentially dangerous), but otherwise what's the point?

It makes me feel better about our decision to stay home this time around.

And, are folks really going to be scrutinized for 2 vaxx shots and a booster at the front door? All 300?

I assume people are allowed to remove masks while they are eating.  Gotta get the concession money.

What is the theater accepting as proof of vaccination? Is the Massachusetts app with QR code acceptable? Picture of vax card or do people need the original?

     Original vax card or a picture of it are accepted.
     For those attending, please keep your masks on if youre not eating or drinking.  You dont want to catch this bug.  I certainly dont.
