Sales for films will only be done in advance over the phone (631-288-1500) or onlineNo sales will be done at the door.  Please do not come if you are feeling sick, have had contact with someone who may be infected with the novel coronavirus, or have been asked to quarantine by a health official.  You may call the Box Office and have your tickets exchanged for a different film or refunded back to your credit card.
All tickets will be e-tickets that are scanned at the door.  You may print them out or display them on your smartphone.  Once the ticket is scanned, you must enter the auditorium – if you leave, you will not be able to re-enter. 
Please remain six feet or more from persons not in your household.  You must wear a mask at all times in the building.  If you do not have one, or your face covering is deemed inadequate by staff, you will be provided a disposable one.  Refusal to wear a mask will result in expulsion from the premises.
We provide hand sanitizer at convenient locations throughout the theatre, and strongly encourage patrons to use it.  We also strongly encourage patrons to download the app NY COVID Alert to their smartphones, and keep their smartphones with them at all times.
You will be sent a screening form via email on the day of the show.  This form must be completed for every member of your party.  Failure to complete the form may result in your tickets being refunded and your dismissal from the premises.
Your temperature will be taken at the door with a contact-less thermometer.  If your temperature is above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, your tickets will be refunded and you will be asked to leave.
WHBPAC strives to keep everyone healthy and safe while providing the chance to see first class world cinema and independent, art house films.  We follow all available health guidelines from New York State.  We ionize, sanitize, and otherwise clean like madmen between every show time.  If you would like more information on how we are doing so, please see our Path to Reopening.


Dear Parents, 

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We have received questions from parents about if and how COVID-19 will affect Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. We know this pandemic has been stressful to many and recognize that socializing and interacting with peers can be a healthy way for children to cope with stress and connect with others, particularly after spending quite a bit of time at home. After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume camps and classes while following CDC considerations to protect campers, families, and our community. 

The health and safety of our students and staff remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible. We are:

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection practices within our facilities and premises by wiping down all surfaces and using an ionizer in between classes.
  • Keeping our classes small.
  • Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between students and staff.
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices by asking our students to frequently wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, monitoring campers to make sure they are washing their hands, providing our students with hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol when they don’t have easy access to soap and water, encouraging children to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and posting signs about these healthy habits around the camp facility.
  • We will be wearing face coverings in rehearsal and as well as remaining diligent of proper social distancing.

We ask that you help us protect the health of our students. Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days— including staff, campers, and families— should not come to camp. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.

If you have a specific question about this plan or COVID-19, please contact Kristen Poulakis at 631-288-2350 x 112 or more information. You can also find more information about COVID-19 at or on CDC’s website for youth and summer camps (

We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you and stay healthy, 


Kristen Poulakis
