You can park right in front of the main entrance for about $9. Well worth it!

Plenty of parking in the lot. It's $9 cash only though, so be prepared!

$9 parking in the CSULB Carpenter Center lot or, if you're lucky, a free street spot on Atherton adjacent the theater. Reasonable bar (beer and wine) prices, though selection is limited.

A few cussing words in there. "bitchy, damn it, ass." Didn't like that for my 5 and 4 year old. Also, a scene where the father tells his elf son that he never asked for him to be born and to "get out of his life." Too dramatic for small children. Needed to have less scary words. This affected my kids.
