Big things are developing around the Wellmont Theater! Seymour Street as well as the South Fullerton and South Willow parking lots are now closed for construction of the new Montclair Arts & Entertainment District, which will include a Public Plaza with a walkway to S Fullerton Avenue and a 220-space parking deck (to be completed mid-2019). The $135 million, 3.5-acre mixed-use redevelopment project will be host to 200 new residential units, along with retail and offices, on an adjacent site.
In the interim, Wellmont Theater patrons can find parking on the streets surrounding the theater and in nearby parking lots (Metered parking in effect Monday through Saturday 8am to 7pm; free after 7pm daily and all day Sunday). Additionally, until completion of the new Seymour Street garage, free parking will be provided in the Lackawanna Plaza lot behind TD Bank (Bloomfield Avenue and Grove Street) for Wellmont Theater concert goers with a ticket on show days. We encourage fans to utilize rideshare services, arrive early to secure parking, and enjoy the many shops and restaurants of Montclair.
