Parking in downtown Montclair is challenging. There are parking lots and street parking available, however, we recommend using public transportation, including Uber or Lyft, when possible.

We are planning a shuttle service from parking lots at Bay Street Train Station and Lackawanna Plaza to the Wellmont and Clairidge Theaters – please check back for updated information.

Remember that festival films start on time – there are no trailers. Please allow plenty of extra time to find parking, and please obey parking regulations.

Montclair Kimberley Academy (Upper School Campus)

Parking is available in the lot behind MKA, in the Walden Place lot behind the football field, and along Lloyd Road as posted.
