A. There are mens and womens rooms on all three floors. Each set is accessible by elevator; however, the only ADA restrooms are on the main floor.

A. The Members’ Lounge is located on the second floor, directly above the Salina St doors. The lounge is accessible by stairs or the elevator. An usher will be stationed there and will check your lounge passes.
Q. How do I find my seats?
A. If your tickets say “LOGE” or “BALC,” you will be upstairs. Keep in mind, you will have to take the seating. The elevator only goes to the lobbies.

If you need any more assistance, you can always ask a Landmark Theatre staff member or an usher.

Wheelchair accessibility is available in five different locations on the orchestra level, as well as 12 seats with flip-up armrests for those who use walkers, who can transfer from a wheelchair, or who find our seats too restrictive.

Q. Is there a hold for this show?
A. There is a hold at the beginning of both Act 1 and Act 2. A hold is a period of time at the start of a show where patrons are not allowed to enter or leave the theatre. Please plan accordingly when getting snacks or using the restroom so you don’t get stuck in the lobby during the hold. If you are in the lobby, the show will be playing on the TVs, so you are able to watch and listen to the performance. As soon as the hold is over, you will be allowed back into the theatre.
