In order to create a safe an enjoyable experience for all of our guests, the Bellco Theatre has implemented the following security policies:
All guests are subject to search
Please arrive early. Anyone entering the Convention Center for an event at the Bellco Theatre is subject to a reasonable search including but not limited to metal detection and a bag search. The Bellco Theatre reserves the right to inspect personal belongings of suspicious nature. This includes bags, purses, coats, and hats. Your experience will be much like an airport so it is highly recommended that you arrive early.
In the event that prohibited items are revealed during a search, the guest will be permitted to return to their vehicle with the item or the item will be confiscated. Venue management reserves final decision on items allowed into the Bellco Theatre.
Your security check experience will be much like an airport's security process. Please ensure that you do not bring any of the following items:
All outside food or beverages including alcoholic beverages
Laser pointers (devices will be confiscated and patron is subject to ejection)
All recording devices (audio, video & cameras as stipulated by the event. Recording media is subject to confiscation)
Weapons or any items construed as weapons (firearms, knives, sticks, chemical spray devices etc.)
Air horns, bullhorns or other distracting noisemakers
Animals (service animals are the only exception)
Personal property that is potentially hazardous to other patrons (wallet chains, jewelry with spikes, etc)
