The concert hall in Old Cabell Hall is wheelchair accessible. Accessible seating is located in the Loge, which is the mid level of the Auditorium. When purchasing tickets, specify how many companions you will have so that appropriate seating can be provided for them as well. There are two wheelchair accessible entrances to Old Cabell Hall.
1. From the Lawn: There is a ramp which leads to the western doors of the lobby.
2. From the C1 parking lot behind Bryan Hall. Enter New Cabell Hall. Immedtiately on the left is a doorway to a push-button-operated lift. Once you have exited the lift, proceed up a short ramp and through a double door. Turn left and go through the first door on your right which leads to the courtyard. At the end of the courtyard ramp there is a door into Old Cabell Hall. Take the elevator to lobby-level "6". After exiting the elevator, turn left and go through a couple of doors to reach the loge wheelchair seating area. The elevator in Old Cabell Hall provides service to most floors of this building, including the level that has wheelchair seating (the lobby-level "6" ) the stage level, and the music library.
The wheelchair accessible restrooms in Old Cabell Hall are located on the lobby level (6th floor) and the stage level (4th floor).

Cinematheque/Newcomb Hall Theater Box Office 924-7900
This movie theater is located in the basement of Newcomb Hall. The elevator to reach the movie theater is located to the left as you enter the Newcomb 1st floor foyer. This elevator only travels to the basement and first floor levels. The other elevator in Newcomb Hall can travel to all floors except the 5th floor and the basement. There are a few spaces off the right aisle where a seat has been removed. This will allow an individual in a wheelchair to sit with his/her companions. There is also space in a few
locations for two or more wheelchair users to sit together.
The Newcomb Hall Theater and various meeting rooms within the Newcomb facility can provide closed captioning for the hearing impaired.
University of Virginia Art Museum
A person using a wheelchair must enter the University of Virginia Art Museum from the parking lot in the back, which has handicapped parking available. The rear door can be opened by a ground pad automatic opener. The elevator is just inside the door and provides access to all floors of the museum without additional assistance. There is an accessible restroom in the museum.
Currently the Architecture building behind the Museum is under renovation construction. Please use designated museum parking areas (signs) to the side of Bayly drive and reserved areas in the parking lot (A6) across the street for visiting the museum. Handicapped parking will remain behind the museum.
Culbreth and Helms Box Office
When making reservations or purchases, advise the theater of your specific disability so they can make suitable accommodations. The box office is accessible via the set of 5 doors (one of which is automatic) at the front of the drama building.
Culbreth Theater sets aside six seats for use as disability seating. The designated seating permits a person using a wheelchair to sit beside or behind his/her companions. Access to the Culbreth Theater itself may be obtained in two ways: wheelchair access to the Culbreth lobby and theater is through the set of double doors to the left at the front entrance of the building. The theater can also be entered using the box office entrance (the right set of doors). To enter the theater from the box office, use the hallway beside the theater, following the tiled floor. A side door provides access to the theater. Ushers will assist those in need of assistance. Free headsets are available to assist people with hearing impairments. Request them at the concession stand. Accessible restrooms are in the Culbreth lobby.
The Helms is the smaller theater within the drama building. To enter, use the box office entrance (right set of 5 doors). Seating in the Helms varies with the production. Wheelchair and companion seating is available for each performance. Headsets are not available; however, the theater itself is much smaller, thus persons who have hearing impairments may be able to hear the actors. Ask an usher to direct you to the restroom behind the Helms as steps block access from the Helms to the main entrance in the Culbreth lobby.
