IU parking permit holders
We are located near many IU parking lots and the Jordan Avenue garage. In addition to wherever your permit normally allows you to park, you may park in any non-24-hour space Monday through Friday evenings from 5 pm until 7 am, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Jordan Avenue garage
This is the nearest parking garage to IU Cinema. Located at 150 N. Jordan Avenue, between Third and Seventh Streets, this garage is free of charge from 6 pm Friday to 7 am Monday. On weekdays, the maximum fee for vehicles entering after 5 pm is $10. The lower level and some spaces on the upper level are reserved for IU parking permit holders, so be sure to park in the visitor spaces on the upper level.Parking garage information and rates
Free weekend parking
You have several options for free weekend parking.
If you regularly attend IU events, we highly recommend you consider purchasing an Auditorium (AU) permit. It enables you to park in any garage or non-24-hour EM-P, EM-S, or ST space on evenings and weekends for any IU Cinema, IU Auditorium, Musical Arts Center, or IU Theatre event.
With an AU permit, you can park in many surface lots near the Cinema and in the Jordan Avenue garage without paying an hourly rate. Please note that this permit is not valid for weekday matinees.
The AU permit costs approximately $32 and is valid July-June, requiring annual renewal.Contact IU Parking Operations to purchase an Auditorium permit
