Safety & Security

You know the drill.

We check bags and things—so you may be in line for a few minutes. Speaking of things, you’ll want to avoid bringing the ones listed below. And speaking of lines, you'll want to get here at least 40 minutes before your show starts. Just in case. But we’ll do everything we can to be as quick and efficient as possible.

Here are a few more things to keep in mind:

  • Be prepared for inspection when you arrive. We use magnetometers and wands at all entrances.
  • Pack light if you need to bring a bag, and make sure it’s smaller than 12” x 12” x 12”. Bags will be searched.
  • Familiarize yourself with the building’s layout and take notice of the nearest exists.
  • If you see something suspicious or out of place, let our security team know immediately.
  • Please always be respectful of those around you.
