Counter terrorism protective security advice for cinemas and theatres

Guidance on reducing the risk from terrorism in cinemas and theatres.



Cinemas and theatres may be targeted by terrorists because they create a concentration of people, and are usually locations with limited protective security measures.

NaCTSO has researched and produced a guide intended to give protective security advice to those who are responsible for security in cinemas and theatres. Whilst the document concentrates on measures to counter terrorism, these will also work against other threats, such as theft, burglary and arson.

The guidance aims to achieve a balance where those responsible for security are informed that there are robust protective security measures available to mitigate against the threat of terrorism.

For site specific advice relating to your premises, contact your CTSA or use the non emergency police telephone number 101.
