Location and Parking

The Stanford Theatre is located at 221 University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto. The theatre's large neon marquee is an easily visible landmark on University Avenue.

There are two large public parking structures within two blocks of the theatre. One is on Bryant Street, in the first block north of University Avenue. The other is on High Street, in the first block south of University Avenue.

The main Palo Alto Caltrain station is within easy walking distance.


Tickets are available at the box office on the day of the show. Ticket prices are $7.00 for adults, and $5 for Seniors (65 and over) and Youth (18 and under).

You can also purchase a Gift Certificate for $24, which is good for four admissions.

We accept cash and credit cards.
