CLICK HERE for a Message about Coronavirus/COVID-19 from The Agora Theatre.

Is Your Venue All Ages?

The venue is all ages, with a few exceptions. Certain events are age restricted due to the nature of that event. If a show is in fact age restricted, this will be noted on The Agora website and on the actual concert ticket.

Where Can I Find Parking?

Parking is available off Prospect Avenue, E. 46th Street, and Euclid Avenue.

Proper signage will be indicated at all available lots, and parking attendants will be on duty throughout the duration of the event; all attendants will be wearing staff shirts.

Parking prices vary per event. Accepted credit card payments include any US-issued and most internationally-issued magstripe or chip cards bearing a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, or Union Pay logo. Apple and Google Pay also accepted.

Do you offer ADA accommodations for those that may need them?

Yes. It is our intent to serve all patrons equally and to offer an accessible and barrier-free event experience. If you or a member of your party require ADA accommodations, we ask that you contact the venue box office reasonably in advance of the event you are attending, so we can make every effort to accommodate specific requests.

Do you allow cameras, or recording devices?

Cameras, video cameras, and other sound recording devices are not permitted in the theatre. When an artist requests a “no-camera” policy, this includes cell phones. Our staff is required to politely enforce this on behalf of the artist. You will be asked to return your device to your car prior to your admittance to the theatre.  The venue reserves the right to make determinations in this area.

What is your bag policy?

For security reasons, we do not allow backpacks, draw-string bags, and big purses. Maximum allowable bag size is 12″ W x 12″ H x 6″ D. Small purses and fanny packs are allowed.
