Parking Information

The Southport Corridor/Wrigleyville neighborhood is a vibrant and densely populated residential and business neighborhood. Please allow extra time when arriving by car and consider utilizing public transportation.

Lot Parking: There is public pay lot available at Blaine School, ½ block north of the theater starting at $16/car (credit card or exact change accepted). We recommend arriving early, as the lot can fill up quickly on the weekends. Note that the price of the lot increases on Cubs game days. 

Valet Parking: Limited valet parking is provided at the entrance to the theater for a fee of $15/car starting an hour and a half before showtime.  We highly recommend arriving early to ensure a stress-free parking experience. If you wish to spend time in the neighborhood after the show, be sure to notify the valet so he can take care of you accordingly. The Valet service is operated by BLK & WHT Valet.

Street Parking: Limited metered street parking along Southport is available for $2/hour for a maximum of 3 hours. Meters run from 9am-9pm Monday through Saturday and 10am–8pm on Sundays. Free street parking is available on and west of Ashland Ave (three blocks west of the theater) and north of Irving Park Road (two blocks north of the theater). Some of these streets have special parking limitations during Cubs night games starting at 5pm. Note some streets are zoned for resident parking only; currently it is best to look on the side streets east of Grace and Byron for free, non-permit parking.
