Bus Load-In Parking

Parking for Rialto Square Theatre LOAD IN.

The photos are a view looking North on Scott St from our fire escape. Scott Street is one way Northbound.

Semis & buses go past the theatre and around the next block [L on Cass, L on Chicago, L on Clinton, then R onto Scott going the wrong way for 1/2 block]

Then pull into the 1st drive to position vehicles with loading doors toward the North, as pictured below, for access into the Stage Door at the rear of the lefthand bus.

Then you may drive onto the gravel to align vehicles, up to 3 as shown. We generally ask the Joliet Police Dept to block off parking on our side [West side] of Scott Street with cones and a Bagged meter. This is for other audio or lighting suppliers and support vehicles.
