Actor’s Express (at the King Plow Arts Center)
887 West Marietta Street NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
When coming from downtown or I-75/85, the driveway that leads to the parking structure is the first on the right after going over the bridge between Marietta Street and West Marietta Street. If you get to the light at Joseph E. Lowery and West Marietta Street, you’ve gone too far.
When entering the theatre’s location into your GPS, be sure to include “WEST” in the street name. Otherwise, you’ll be taken to the wrong location.
Actor’s Express does not have a dress code. Patrons usually opt for casual or
business casual attire. Feel free to dress up for a special night out, dress
down for comfort, or find your own happy medium.
The Actor’s Express bar sells both alcoholic (beer, wine, liquor) and non-

recommend every AE patron take the following steps: 1. Pre-pay before returning to your car in one of the following ways:
- Purchase a prepaid parking ticket at the AE box office with cash or credit card when you pick up your ticket.
- Purchase a prepaid parking ticket at the AE concessions bar with cash
or credit card at intermission or after the show.
- Use the self-serve kiosks with a credit card at the entrance to King Plow to pay for your parking.
- If you go in the second entrance and park in the upper section (Entrance B),
you will get out much more easily and shorten the line coming out for everyone else. Just drive a few feet past Entrance A and turn into Entrance B on the right.
- If there is a valet, use it! Nine times out of ten this valet is free of charge and more than happy to park AE patron’s cars (we tip well
apparently). Just be sure to ask how long they will be there to make sure they don’t plan to pack up before the show ends. It has not
happened yet, but we would hate for it to happen to you.
- Walk over! Park in Lot 9 or at a restaurant and walk down to the theatre. Lot 9 is the King Plow lot at the west end of the complex, and
it’s free to use. Just leave about 10 mins to make the walk.
- Handicap parking is available in the traffic circle directly in front of the
theater entrance and in marked spaces throughout the parking lot and
