*** IMPORTANT *** Reception attendees will need to enter through the door that comes in from the parking garage and opens into the seating area of the theater. The door is on the bottom floor of the Court Street garage and there are four steps that lead down from the garage to the Weinberg exit doors. The steps are located on the East wall opposite the Court Street exit. Once inside, the attendee names will be checked on the list of those that pre-registered. If the attendee does not arrive by 6:30 p.m., their reserved seat will be given away, which means entry will be denied unless they enter through the front door with the general public.
