TRAFFIC ADVISORY AND PARKING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PATRONS OF DISNEY’S THE LION KING AT LANDMARK THEATER

Due to the popularity of Disney’s THE LION KING, evening classes at VCU and area special events parking in and around Richmond’s Landmark Theater is expected to be challenging during the four week engagement of THE LION KING, February 15 – March 11, 2012. Patrons should anticipate congested traffic around the theater and plan accordingly. It is recommended that theater patrons arrive at least one and ½ hours prior to the performance time of THE LION KING to ensure they have time to park and arrive at the theater in time for curtain. Please note that performance start times vary but the production of THE LION KING will start promptly.  The Landmark Theater has contracted with To The Bottom And Back (2BNB) green buses as shuttles from the parking lots to the Landmark Theater and back to the lots after the performances. Please look for signage at the lots for exact location of pick ups.

A list of recommended parking decks and lots is below.  Remember, there are alternative parking decks in the area. On street parking is available but is limited and patrons need to be aware of signs and postings.  Please also consider car pooling or using a taxi service.  Show information, maps, directions and a list of near-by restaurants can be found at LandmarkTheater.net.

Handicapped parking is available at each parking location.  Please contact 804-828-6585 for more information about parking.
