The lobby and theater are all on the same floor, with accessible seating in the first row. An ADA compliant restroom and all-gender restrooms are also available on the first floor. There is no parking lot for the Phoenix. Street parking is free almost everywhere around the space. Likely spots are in front of the school on Hennepin, down 26th, or on one of the residential streets parallel to Hennepin. Do not park in the spots behind the theater, as you will be towed.
