discover :: directions to Nimbus Theatre
1517 Central Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413
MNDOT will be replacing the train bridge directly south of the theater between April - November, 2014. Currently Central Avenue is down to one lane in each direction. Our driveway and parking lot are still fully accessible.
Please give yourself a few extra minutes to get to the theater, in case of traffic delays.
Beginning in late May, 2014, Central Avenue will be closed completely between 14th and 18th Ave. NE. NIMBUS WILL REMAIN OPEN and patrons will be able to access our driveway and parking lot. However, ALL TRAFFIC WILL NEED TO APPROACH FROM THE NORTH. The official detour is University Ave. or Johnson St. to Lowry Avenue.
More information on the project can be found here:
Our new theater is located in Northeast Minneapolis, on Central Avenue just a few blocks 'off' Broadway Avenue NE. It is accross the street from Diamonds Coffee, and next door to Antiquified and Gaytee Stained Glass.
We have plenty of parking for our patrons in our parking lot. Some spots are reserved, so please do not park in the spots with reserved signs. If the main lot is full, you may park on the south side of the building in the Carlson Woodworking lot.
