Bas Barn Theatre was adjacent to Hillview Community Center and I always used to drive in the driveway there and park near Bus Barn. As of 1/29/2020 all of Hillview including parking lots is a construction site and you need to park on the street and walk in. Google Maps is unaware of this and tries to get you to make a left turn off Hillview into a fence.

walking distance to downtown Los Altos with many restaurants to choose from. Theater has a small concession with limited selection, no wine/beer.

Definitely need to use GPS to find the place. If you get there before the doors open, be prepared to stand out in the cold. Small, intimate theater space, every seat is good.

Had a tasty quick-service dinner at Armadillo Willy's only a few minute's drive away.

The theatre is on a side street that's mostly residential, but is in walking distance of downtown Los Altos. It seems that most quick-service restaurants in downtown Los Altos have closed down by 7:00, but there are some full-service restaurants in the neighborhood which are open late enough for a sit-down dinner pre-theatre.

Tons of free parking; Bus Barn is on the grounds of Hillview Community Center, which has very little going on at night.

The theater is tucked beyond the Library and it's parking. Look for the signage for the Library and drive beyond it.

We ate at Esther's German Bakery and Cafe located on San Antonio and El Camino. Food good and price was reasonable. But ran out of coffee at 7:00 pm!
