The two rear entrances have street-level, single doors leading to long hallways that will get you to the box office and theater entrance.
The theater itself is spacious, with wide carpeted aisles (no steps) to all seats. Wheelchair and companion seating is available. Just a note to let you know that renovation is ongoing.

Snacks were available during intermission at the rear of the theater.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call the box office, (631) 581 – 5119. I did, and had a lovely conversation with a very helpful individual.
