Directions & Parking
We recommend giving yourself plenty of time to get to the Seattle Center. Other performances and events (listed here) in and around Seattle Center may impact traffic and parking for the performance you attend.
The Seattle Center Monorail is a quick ride from downtown and fifteen Metro bus routes serve the Center from around the city. The Monorail departs every 10 minutes from Westlake Center Mall, at Fifth and Pine Street and brings you to the base of the Space Needle, just yards from the Center Theatre. You can also use Metro’s Trip Planner to plan your bus trip to Seattle Center from anywhere in the region. The Fifth Ave. & Broad Street stop provides the closest access to the Center Theatre, although there are several stops on all sides of Seattle Center.
There are several parking lots in the vicinity of the Seattle Center. Visit Seattle Center parking for a list of available garages. Please note that the 1st Ave Garage is closing and will not be available.
Seattle traffic is often a hurdle to get here. These links for Up-to-the-minute Seattle traffic conditions and Seattle Construction Look Ahead will help you plan your trip accordingly.
