This theater was beautiful! We were visiting Cape Town for a few weeks and heard the Sound of Music would be at the ArtScape and had to go! It was fabulous.

instead of going into the underground parking, you would drive through an overhang of the building, at the back, on street level. She can get out there and the lift is in that lower foyer to the main foyer above.
