Free short-term parking at NAC satellite box office.

Save time by pre-paying for your parking before going back to your vehicle.

Pre-paid parking saves you time exiting the garage!  On busy nights, a kiosk will be set up in the main lobby and post show in the garage lobbies, and we encourage you to pre-pay your parking. 

The more patrons who pre-pay their parking, the faster everyone gets out of the garage at the end of the night.
