What is your photo/recording policy?
Non-professional, non-flash, still photography is permitted at most events. However, for some events, at the request of the artist/performer, photography of any type may be prohibited. On show days, any adjusted policy will be advertised on signs at the entrance to the venue.
Video and audio recording devices, flash photography, and professional photography equipment are not permitted without express written consent. Cell phone cameras are permitted, however, video recording using a cell phone camera or any type of mobile device is prohibited.
American Music Theatre reserves the right to confiscate any photo or recording device if policy signs are ignored. Patrons found possessing professional equipment not expressly authorized will be asked to leave their cameras in their vehicles, or will otherwise be escorted from the venue. This policy will be strictly enforced and management reserves the right to deny any electronic device at their discretion.
