April 25 is the date being circled on many calendars as Philadelphians look forward to stepping out on the town again…
The Philadelphia Film Society, in addition to observing local and state COVID-19 restrictions, also follows the CDC’s Considerations for Events and Gatherings, as does the Oscars Party Venue, Sunset Social at Cira Green.
While it is expected that a late April event at a heated outdoor venue – at a large % of the population will be vaccinated – will provide for a safe and festive event, the Film Society remains committed to – and will observe – healthy behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19, such as hand washing, staying home if sick, maintaining 6 feet of distance, and the mandatory wearing of masks.
Additionally, Sunset Social employs stringent environmental prevention practices such as regular and thorough cleaning and disinfection to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
With state and local restrictions continuing to loosen between now and April 25, we look forward to seeing many of our members and donors at this year’s Oscars Party as Philadelphians once again begin to gather in person.
