Safety and Security

It is our highest priority to ensure comfort and provide the safest environment possible for our patrons, artists, and organizations that call Smith Center home.

The Smith Center has numerous measures in place to ensure comfort and provide the safest environment possible for our patrons, artists and organizations that call The Smith Center home.


COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

In light of the current COVID-19 concerns in Las Vegas and around the country, and in accordance with city and health professionals’ recommendations, select upcoming performances and events have been rescheduled, postponed or cancelled at all Smith Center venues.


To help make your evening as enjoyable as possible, please keep the following in mind to prepare for your arrival.

Arrive Early

Given necessary security measures and screening, we ask patrons to arrive early to make sure they don’t miss the start of the show and get caught in a late seating hold. To expedite the process, please remove any large metal objects from your pockets and bags/purses. You may keep your keys and cell phone in your pockets or bag/purses.

Alternative accommodations for security screening will be provided to those who need it. Guests who refuse screening will be denied entry.

Travel Light

To ensure you’re able to enjoy dining or shopping before the show, avoid bringing oversized bags, packages, backpacks and luggage to the theater. All persons and bags are subject to search and screening before entering the building.

If You See Something, Say Something
