Andy Williams PAC

This was our first visit to this theatre. Is there a elevator down into the theatre part? As we exited out of the show yezterday there were several older people that were having a very hard time making it up the stairs. A couple i thought were going to have to be carried up the stairs. There were at least 6 tour buses there. We were shocked there didnt seem to be a better way out for these people.

We took my mother 2 or 3 years ago and once we got in had no idea how we were going to get out, but there was a couple real nice employees that came to us and led us and a few others out a side door that went past some dressing rooms and offices, then they moved some barricades and were able drive car right up to the door.

But I agree this is not a theater for anyone with mobility issues.

Yes, this handicap access was added when Jimmy Osmond took over the theatre following Andy's passing. When this theatre was built, ADA was just brand new. I believe since this theatre was already under construction, it was grandfathered in and exempt from ADA compliance. It really is a very difficult theatre to navigate for people with any level of mobility issues. But at this point, I'm not sure there's much more they can do. Except for better signage.

I saw wynonna the other night and noticed several in walkers going down the steps not sure where the wheelchair people went. for people with mobility issues this place is hard to get around,

Jimmy was there walking around so I wonder if he noticed the walkers going down the steps

This issue of the theater being so handicapped unfriendly is what keeps me from attending many things that I would love to there. The side entrance/exit is fine if you have someone to drop you off. I don’t; so that does me no good. And not just the theater, but the parking lot is no picnic either. I’ve been told that they have shuttles, but it’s been my luck that they operated only once during the time that I needed them. It’s really a shame because it’s such a beautiful theater.

I never saw any shuttles but that doesnt mean there were none, I being alone got there early and parked as close as I could. I found my car easily but it was close by. If not then that can be a challenge.

Yes, when I used to go to this theater, I planned to arrive early to find a close & fairly level parking spot that didn’t involve stairs, and with a minimal amount of uphill walking required, but it proved to be a futile endeavor because those sections were always barracaded off.
