A NOTE ABOUT FOOD AT 3BELOW: 3Below has a cafe offering hot bites, cool treats, beer, wine, coffee, and more – all of which IS allowed in all areas of the venue. However, there is NO outside food or drink allowed in the building, with the sole exception of a reclosable bottled water. Please plan accordingly when you attend for an event. While we encourage patronage at nearby restaurants, please plan to finish your meal at the restaurant and not within our theaters or cafe. We reserve the right to check bags for outside food. We will ask you to leave if you bring meals into the theater and if you decide not to return after discarding the food, there is no refund for your ticket. Why? Because the state and county health codes state as much and because the foods we have on our menu are things we can quickly clean in the event of a spill and are less odorous (read: offensive) to the majority of patrons. Please respect this rule as a guest in our venue.

Going Green

We offer reusable 20oz soda tumblers and straws as well as reusable cups with lids for wine. Bonus: Once restrictions lift in a post-Covid world, we’ll offer discounts on refills when you bring in these reusable vessels!
ALL of our serveware is compostable. Cups, lids, plates, boxes, straws, flatware…even the candy bags and containers are compostable so unlike regular ole’ plastic, this trash won’t live on our planet for ages. AND No More Plastic Bottled Water! Beverages like water and other non-soda drinks are available only in recyclable cans and glass bottles.
ALL of our waste-ware is compostable. Behind the counter, we have also made changes. Our team is using compostable gloves, towels, and bin liners. We are pleased to be working with like-minded vendors for product supply and waste management.
