Theatre Courtesies

You may be asked to leave the Luhrs Center if you do not comply with these courtesies:

Food and Beverages
Snacks, water, and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase and consumption during most shows in the Orrstown Bank second floor lobby before the performance and during intermission. Food and beverages are permitted within Grove Theatre. Outside food and beverages are not permitted inside the building.

Patrons are strongly encouraged to refrain from using large quantities of perfumes or aftershaves prior to arrival at the Luhrs Center. This is a courtesy to other patrons that may be allergic to these types of fragrances.

The Luhrs Center was designed with excellent acoustics, so please be aware that noise, like coughing and talking, can be heard on stage and elsewhere in the theatre as easily as music from the stage carries to the seats.

During certain concerts at the Luhrs Center, the artists may encouage guests to stand or dance in front of the stage area or in their seats.  On these occasions, we request that guests who choose to stand be respectful of those seated around them and seated guests be understanding of concert protocol.
