Parking and Directions

The Academy Center of the Arts campus is located in Downtown Lynchburg. We are open from 12pm – 5pm, Monday through Friday, and have three venues on our campus, the Historic Academy Theatre, the Joy and Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre and Lobby, and the Ann White Academy Gallery/Up Front Gallery Building.


Parking is available on-site and throughout downtown Lynchburg. Free public and paid parking lots are within walking distance. In addition, street parking is also available on most streets. Visit the Downtown Lynchburg site for more Downtown parking information.

We suggest utilizing the Lynchburg Grand Hotel parking garage, located across the street from the theatre, or the Pacific Life Parking Lot (available to patrons after 5:00 PM & on weekends), located off of 7th Street. 

Tickets are not required for the parking in the Lynchburg Grand Parking lot across from the theater. It is free & unticketed to enter the garage and park.
