Park at the nearby Trader Joe's. The theater validates (get the validation in the lobby at the desk). I can't recall how much the parking it is but it is much cheaper than any other lot!

Parking is available at 2 hour meters across the street or nearby. No fee after 8pm. There's also a $7 lot right by the theatre if you prefer.

We drove over to The W Hotel for an early lite dinner on the patio. Only a mile away. Perfect!

Parking was only $4 at the Palazzo parking lot. Just ask for a validation ticket at the Geffen box office. Lots of places to eat in Westwood Village. The theatre patio is extremely pleasant and relaxing prior to the start of the play.

Parking: The free parking at the Westwood public structure (paid for by the Geffen) is a real hassle when everyone leaves at once. We pay $5.50 for a lot a block away from the theater and are home in bed by the time the last person straggles out of that slow garage line.

If you park in the public structure next to Trader Joes, the Geffen will validate.

Get there early and street parking is available. Otherwise, parking is a long walk around the block at Trader Joe's.

Geffen is a lovely, intimate venue, where every seat is a good one.

If you get there at 6:00, there is street parking (parking meter) which is a lot more reasonable than the parking lots.

or, add your own... If you arrive within 2 hours of 8:00 p.m. and are lucky enough to get an available parking space on the street at a meter it will cost you $2.00 ($1.00) per hour) which is very reasonable compared to parking lot expense.

The Geffen has a beautiful courtyard in it's historic 1929 building so I recommend getting there a little early to enjoy it.

I'm always able to find street parking towards Hilgard and pay about 50 cents as the meters stop being valid after 8 p.m. so for a weeknight show you can get parking for 25-50 cents.
