Park and Ride the Festival Loop
The festival offers a free shuttle to all of our venues Wednesday-Sunday from 8 am until the last filmgoers and volunteers are returned to their cars. Please park at the east side NMC Cherry Lot, near Milliken Auditorium, or the west side Thirlby Field Lot, where buses will stop every 5 to 15 minutes to pick you up and take you around the Festival Loop. Parking at the east side or west side lots are easy! From there, you can take the Free Festival Loop Shuttle while you park all day and night without worry or cost. The Loop stops at each movie theater, the free festival parking lots and the Larry C. Hardy Parking Deck and Old Town Parking Deck downtown. It’s free, green and easy!
For movies at Lars Hockstad Auditorium, please help us be good neighbors, exit quietly after nighttime shows, and do not park in the neighborhood. If you cannot use the Festival Loop or the accessible parking in the Lars Hockstad parking lot, please park in the City lots along Union Street, or in business lots after hours.
