Parking & Transportation:

Closest street parking is available on Stetson or Beaubien, which are perpendicular streets adjacent to the theater. The Millennium Park Garage offers direct access into the theater and is attached to the lower lobby entrance. The garage entrance is located at 5 South Columbus Ave, and can accommodate vehicle height up to 6’8”. To find the closest accessible parking to the theater entrance, follow signage for “Harris Theater” posted in the garage to Levels 2 or 3 north. These spots are closest to the garage lobby, where you can take an elevator to the Harris entrance.
