After the matinee, we walked to Bar Ama which was so delicious, I wish I was still there....

Bring something small you can sit on. The seating is bleacher style and you will be glad to have something to sit on instead of a hard wooden bleacher seat.

Several tips recommend Clifton's Cafeteria for dining. Note that the cafeteria section closes at 9 PM, so it's great for dining before the show, but only the bar service is open after the show (until 2 AM).

The bleacher seating is painfully hard to sit on - you will thank yourself if you bring a chair cushion or even an inflatable doughnut pillow!

If anyone attending is mobility challenged, be aware that the restrooms are two floors below the lobby, and there is no elevator. Also, climbing up to some of the upper bleacher seating may be a strain for the weak-kneed.

Come early and explore the various downstairs lounge areas which have been imaginatively transformed into CARRIE themed environments.

The new Bar Mattachine is literally right around the corner, and Precinct is a few blocks opposite the Red Line station. Perfect for post-show cocktails.

Forget the LA traffic and parking, we took the Gold Line and Red/Purple Line from Pasadena to LA and it was easy! Metro was $1.75 each way, no traffic, no parking fee. The theater is just a couple blocks from the Red Line stop, easy!

Clifton's cafeteria is right across the street - long lines so better to go after the show.

Parking is right new door but I took Metro. The Red / Purple line station is a block away and the 7th / Metro (for the Expo and Blue lines) is a short walk up 7th Street.

Go to Clifton's across the street. You can't get more convenience than that.

Be sure to visit the lower part of the theater where they have staged the girls locker room for atmosphere (and a photo op). Complete with "Carrie White Eat Shit" written in 'blood' on the tile wall and tamons strewn about on the floor.

Parking is was not easy to find, actually got stuck for a while in an underground parking lot that was overly jammed and had to reverse my way back up the ramp!
