COVID Policy:
The Television Academy follows Los Angeles County COVID guidelines and will continue to do so as they evolve.

Currently, Screening Room attendance requires you provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours of the event. The date of the last shot must be more than two weeks prior to the event. Digital or hard-copy proof of vaccinations will be accepted. The COVID test must be time and date stamped.

Guests will not be required to wear masks, as this is consistent with all other theatres in the Los Angeles area. However, we do encourage mask wearing for our indoor spaces.

Additional Guidelines:
We expect all members and guests to behave respectfully and adhere to these Screening Room guidelines when in attendance. In the event there is a disturbance, we ask that you let the Screening Room staff know and they will handle any issue that requires attention.

We also ask that you extend professional courtesy by remaining seated until all credits have rolled at the end of screenings and to be respectful of your fellow Television Academy members.

The Television Academy reserves the right to impose a revocation of Screening Room membership pertaining to any member misconduct.

As a reminder, please do not bring DVD screeners to Screening Room events.
