The Downey Theatre offers wheelchair accessible seating in the Orchestra section.  Rows A, C, and E have seats on the aisle on both sides of the theatre so that you or members of your party may stay in the wheelchair or transfer to the aisle seat.  If transferring, our staff will place your chair underneath the main lobby staircase and will retrieve your chair during intermission and at the end of the show. Please be advised to take all personal belongings out of your wheelchair and keep them on your person.
Please note: The Downey Theatre balcony is stairway access only.
