Show The Public Theatre on a map.

Please refer to the below map for parking areas.

FREE PARKING is available in the Lisbon Street lot next to the theatre. The parking area "behind" our building marked in GREEN is available courtesy of O'Reilly/VIP.

Due to expanded store hours, the O'Reilly/VIP lot closest to their building, marked in RED, is no longer available for theatre patron parking.  Please respect their wishes and do not park in that area of the lot.

There is still plenty of parking in the Oxford Network and Kaplan University lots across Maple St as well as on the street where allowed. Don't forget the municipal parking garage next to Kaplan. It's free after 6 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.

The entrance to the theatre is on Maple Street under the Marquee.
