IMPORTANT: The parking lot at the Lucie Stern Community Center is under construction until January 2020, so we recommend giving yourself an additional half hour to find a spot in the streets of the surrounding neighborhood. There is a small lot open behind the theatre off of Hopkins Ave, but it only contains 27 spaces. For patrons with mobility issues, we recommend utilizing the drop-off area at the front of the Lucie Stern Community Center, at the corner of Middlefield Rd and Melville Ave.
