Finding The Theater

street view 2_edited.jpg

The Theater At Innovation Square is conveniently located near several other Rochester landmarks including the Strong National Museum of Play, GEVA Theatre, and the Eastman School of Music.


Nestled in the corner of Broad and Chestnut, arriving via 490 is easy, and once open, the parking garage at Innovation Square will provide ample parking for events at The Theater with elevator access directly to the main lobby. 

Until the Innovation Parking Garage opens, please use on-street parking around The Theater, or either of Washington Park or Midtown garages. To access The Theater from those locations, please exit the garages at street level, and make your way to the corner of Broad and Chestnut Street. The Theater is located across from the Five Star Bank, and the entrance faces the middle of the block- away from Chestnut street, as shown in the picture. Once inside the doors, follow signs to the second floor.
