Where should we park?
Our partner at the Arrow Parking lot on Water Street is offering $5 parking when you provide them your theater ticket or a CSC coupon validation (obtained from the Box Office) upon exiting the garage. The safe, well-lighted garage is located one block south of the theater, with entrances on both Lombard and Water Streets between Calvert and South Streets.

Can I park on the street?  CSC’s new theater is downtown in the heart of the bustling legal and business district, and next door to several hotels.  If you’re attending a performance, we recommend the Arrow Parking lot on Water Street. If you’re stopping by during weekday business hours to visit our office, you might snag a metered spot on the street — but watch the signs!  On Calvert Street, metered parking is permitted only between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  (and the meter monitors are diligent). The tow trucks appear right on time at 3 p.m.  Try Redwood Street,  where you don’t have to feed the meters as often. The meters accept change ($2 an hour) or credit cards.
