The newly-restored Virginia Theatre has updated all of its restrooms to be ADA-compliant and now includes transfer seating on both levels plus wheelchair-accessible seating on the auditorium’s main floor. Up to 18 wheelchairs can be accommodated with one companion seat available per wheelchair. Tickets for accessible and companion seating may be purchased by calling 217-356-9063.
The theatre also features a wheelchair lift for guests accessing the stage from the auditorium, a LULA (Limited Use Limited Access) elevator allowing access from the stage to the downstairs dressing rooms, and an elevator allowing access to the building’s upstairs lobby and restrooms.*
Assisted listening devices are available upon request. A single earpiece bud, ear speaker, or neck loop may be used by a guest to enhance their enjoyment of films, spoken word events and some live performances. Devices may be obtained at the box office before the show. A credit card, driver’s license or other form of ID is required.
For specific questions about the assisted listening devices, accessible seating or other accommodations, please call the box office at 217-356-9063.
*Please note that the Virginia’s mezzanine and upper balcony seating are still accessible only via stairs.
