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).

Avoid the cost and hassle of parking downtown with these options:

Taxis:  

A taxi stand is available just across 14th Street at The Curtis Hotel. Or, our staff is happy to call a cab from the Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex.

Bus: 

RTD offers more than 15 bus routes that pick up and drop off within one block of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. When planning your route to the Complex, put in "Speer Boulevard and Arapahoe Street" as your cross streets to get the best results.

When using RTD’s Access-a-Ride service, please specify that the Denver Performing Arts Complex is your destination. The address on file is 1101 13th St., but drivers should receive an alert that your drop-off location is 14th & Curtis street, the main entrance to all theaters.

Light Rail:

RTD Light Rail lines D, F and H all make stops at 14th & Champa, beneath the Colorado Convention Center. When planning your route to the Complex, put in "Speer Boulevard and Arapahoe Street" as your cross streets to get the best results.

Ride-sharing Services:

Both Uber and Lyft operate in Denver, with the option to use a mobile app to quickly request and pay for an affordable ride to and from anywhere in the Denver metro area. If you want to drive yourself (and still avoid parking), one-way point-to-point car rental memberships like Car2Go and Zipcar are also available.

Bike Sharing:

For the casual night out, Denver is host to a B-cycle bike sharing program, with more than 80 bike stands located around the Denver metro area. The closest bike pick-up and drop-off to our theatres is located right next door at the Convention Center.
