Coronado Security Measures

New security enhancements have been implemented, and all guests attending performances at the Coronado will be screened prior to entering the theatre. Security personnel will be present at every entrance and will wand each guest as they enter the facility. To accommodate the additional time needed for the new security procedures, please arrive early.

For most events, doors open 60 minutes prior to start time. This may vary by event. For specific information, please call the Coronado Box Office at 815-968-0595 or check the event specific page at

In the event that prohibited items are revealed during the search, the guest will be permitted to dispose of the item or return it to their vehicle. The Coronado Theatre reserves the right to confiscate any prohibited items and/or escort the guest from the building. The Coronado Theatre will not safeguard any personal belongings or items of any type. Prohibited items include, but not limited to:

  • Outside food or beverages.
  • Glass/plastic/metal cans or bottles or any similar containers. RSO theatre safe cups are allowed.
  • Weapons of any kind (knives, firearms, pepper spray, pocket knives, etc.)
  • Any other item deemed unacceptable by Coronado Theatre management
