Directions to our theatres

All of our theatres are located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex in downtown Denver, which takes up the blocks between Speer Boulevard and 14th Street, and between Arapahoe and Champa streets. The intersection of 14th and Curtis streets is a good pick-up and drop-off location for all theatres (see map below).

Don't forget to view our calendar of downtown events to make note of days when parking might be more difficult.
