How are you getting to Next Theatre?

There's plenty of free parking and it's just steps from the CTA Purple Line.
Next is conveniently located right next to the Noyes stop on the Evanston El (Purple line).

Directions From Chicago:
Take Lake Shore Drive to Hollywood. Continue west on Hollywood until it intersects with Ridge. Take Ridge north into Evanston and straight on to Noyes Street. Then take a right-we're the third building on the left. Alternatively, after exiting Lake Shore Drive, take Sheridan Road north into Evanston. When it straightens out alongside Northwestern University, look for Noyes Street and take a left. We're about three blocks west, just past the El tracks.
Directions from the north:
Take Green Bay Road south to Noyes Street, then left (East) about three blocks.
Directions from the west:
Take Golf Road east (Golf changes to Emerson in Evanston). Take a left on Ridge, go three blocks, then right on Noyes.
Directions from the expressways:
Take the Edens to the Dempster East exit. Continue east on Dempster for about 4 miles to Chicago Avenue; take a left, and proceed north about one mile (Chicago merges with Sheridan Rd. in front of Northwestern) to Noyes Street; turn left. We're about three blocks west, just past the El tracks.
Free parking is available in a lot** adjacent to the theatre, with additional free parking in a huge lot behind the Evanston Civic Center, one block south on Ridge Avenue.
** Please note that during Saturday Matinees, our lot's permit spaces are not available. Please use meters or the lot on Ridge.
