Lucie Stern Theatre

1305 Middlefield Rd. Palo Alto, CA 94301

The parking lot at the Lucie Stern Community Center is under partial construction, and can only be entered from the rear of the theatre, near the intersection of Hopkins Avenue and Harriet Street. While there are parking spaces available, they are somewhat limited, so we recommend giving yourself an additional half hour to find a spot in the streets of the surrounding neighborhood. For patrons with mobility issues, we recommend utilizing the drop-off area at the front of the Community Center, at the corner of Middlefield Road and Melville Avenue.
