Handicap Accessibility

To request special seating based on special needs, we are able to accommodate you if we are contacted in advance. Generally we like to have patrons with special seating needs arrive 5 minutes prior to door time so our staff can get you settled in before the crowd. Please for purchasing handicapped seating or arrange for special needs. We’d like to make your evening as easy as possible.

The Boulder Theater is a fully ADA compliant facility, and we make every effort to accomodate all individuals with special needs.

We would be happy to help in person as well at the Boulder Theater Box Office. Patrons will be able to purchase one companion ticket in addition to their ADA purchase.
