There are two parking garages within a block of the theater. The Municipal Parking Garage at the corner of Assembly and Taylor has 5 hour parking meters on its lowest level. This is your best option for parking for weekday matinees. After 5pm there is usually ample street parking on Main Street at the regular metered spaces.
During Total Eclipse weekend (August 19-21) the city of Columbia will be charging $10 cash for parking at The Municipal Parking Garage at the corner of Assembly and Taylor (credit cards will not be accepted.)
