Contactless entry and ticketing

  • Your phone will be your ticket to get in, and we encourage you to use a debit or credit card at the box office when buying tickets.


HVAC systems

  • Our air handling systems are operating to full design capabilities to maximize the number of air exchanges per hour, and we have enhanced the filtration.

Hennepin Theatre Trust acknowledges that personal safety is also a concern among many visitors. The Trust will be employing on-site security services in our historic theatres and The Hennepin to connect to emergency services when needed and provide our guests with a safe experience.

We are also engaging with our patrons, donors, and community and civic leaders to listen to their comments, share information and advise on effective solutions to the challenges endured during the past year. We are also working closely with Downtown Council, DID Ambassadors, community organizations such as MAD DADS YouthLink and the City of Minneapolis Office of Violence Prevention, the hospitality industry and business leaders to better inform and implement our safety measures.

Downtown is open and is already welcoming visitors with the return of sporting events, restaurants, live music and gatherings. You can keep track of all the up-to-date information at
