Parking for Movies on the Common Tonight

I'm down on the Common now, the screen is going up as I type this.

Did you know the city offers free WiFi access on the Common?

I checked out all the local parking garages, here's what I was told:

City Square Garage, 0.1 mi., 100 Front St. (entrance on Commercial St.) - No special event at DCU Center tonight so standard pricing of $2 to $10. They normally close at 10 pm but agreed to stay open until 11 pm tonight. Cash only.

Worcester Plaza Garage, 0.2 mi., 40 Pleasant St. - Closes at 11 pm sharp. Standard rate of $2 to $7 applies.

Pearl-Elm Municipal Garage, 0.2 mi., 20 Pearl St. - Just $1 if you enter after 5 pm. They normally close at 10 pm but Fay assured me they would keep the garage open until at least 11:15 pm tonight.
Worcester Public Library Parking Lot, 0.2 mi., 3 Salem Square (entrance on Salem St.) - Open until midnight, metered parking.
Federal Plaza Municipal Garage, 0.2 mi., 570 Main St. - Hanover event tonight, premium rates may apply. Otherwise it is just $1 if you enter after 5 pm. Garage closes at midnight tonight.


  1. We're planning on being there! ...At least for the beginning of the show (our daughters are five and two and probably won't last all the way through Grease!).

  2. Great show tonight! Can't wait for the next one! I just posted my blog about the show (and the series) if you'd care to read it:
