COVID-19 Special Notice
As of March 22nd, Pierce County is in Phase 2 of the Governor’s Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery plan. As our community’s health and safety is our highest priority, there are currently no general admission movies being screened at this time. Instead, we are offering ALL AVAILABLE TIMES times for private theater rentals, starting on April 17th, 2021.
We will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation in our community, and when we are able to safely and sustainably re-open the theater to general admission, we will do so.
Rent the Blue Mouse
The Blue Mouse makes its facility available to private groups by reservation only. Fees are based on the number of hours the renter requires, as well as the level of services and support needed.
Facilities: The Blue Mouse has seating for 219 but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently limiting groups to 25 persons, maximum, plus a stage suitable for speaking engagements, panel discussions and limited on-stage entertainment. There is no backstage area for costume changes, scene changes, etc. We have a microphone sound system and limited lighting capabilities. Digital Projection available with blu-ray and DVD capabilities.
Fees: Many fees are detailed below. If you have further questions, or have an event idea that is not covered below then please contact us – we’d be happy to help you determine the cost for your event. Sorry, no outside projectionists are permitted.
Rentals during the COVID-19 Pandemic
As our community’s health and safety is our highest priority, there will be guidelines and expectations for private rentals during this time. Here’s how we’re keeping you safe — and what we expect you to do to help keep our community safe — during your private rental:
What you can expect from The Blue Mouse
- Our theater is clean. We disinfect between parties, and professionally deep clean the theater no less than once a week.
- Our staff is socially distanced. We maintain safe social distance while working for you at The Blue Mouse.
- Our staff is masked. We wear masks, as required by common sense and the Governor of Washington.
- We have installed air filters. In December 2020 we installed an extra, ionizing filtration system into our HVAC system, to help boost our COVID-fighting efforts indoors.
- During parties we offer a small popcorn & small soda combo for $4
- Social distancing is truly important. We strongly advise cupcakes instead of birthday cake during this Phase – it’s so much easier to serve and eat in a distanced way!
What The Blue Mouse expects from you:
- You will wear a mask at all times (except briefly, when eating or drinking) when inside The Blue Mouse. No exceptions – no mask, no movie.
- Your group size will be 25 persons or smaller. During this Phase, we are making the decision to limit group sizes to 25 person. As we all make our way through this pandemic, we will evaluate our ability to host larger parties.
- You will maintain social distance in all public spaces in the theater. There are markings on the floor near the concessions. Stay distanced!
- Groups from different family units will sit more than 5 theater seats or 3 theater rows apart from each other.
- Neither you, nor any of your guests, will attend The Blue Mouse if you have any symptoms of sickness, including (but not limited to) fever, runny nose, coughing, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell or a positive COVID-19 test. If you’re sick, stay home!
$250.00 for a 3-hour rental. $75 an hour for every hour (or part of an hour) after the first 3 hours.
