All BAM performances are accessible to those who use wheelchairs. Wheelchair locations in all our theaters are on the orchestra level. Patrons who are unable to transfer from a wheelchair to a theater seat may purchase wheelchair locations for themselves and a companion. These tickets are located behind the last row of the orchestra section (premium seating), but are always priced the same as the balcony section (budget seating). Please contact BAM Ticket Services directly at 718.636.4159 for information or to purchase tickets for wheelchair locations.
BAM Rose Cinemas, located in the Peter Jay Sharp Building, are wheelchair accessible.
For wheelchair accessible entrances, please see the maps above.
There are wheelchair accessible restrooms in both theaters. The Peter Jay Sharp Building--home to the Opera House and Cinemas--has wheelchair accessible restrooms on all levels. The wheelchair accessible restroom at the BAM Harvey Theater is on the lobby level. In the Fisher building, wheelchair accessible restrooms are available on all public floors.
The Peter Jay Sharp Building and BAM Fisher have elevators for full access to all levels. Please note that the Gallery at the BAM Harvey Theater does NOT have an elevator. The Gallery at the BAM Harvey Theater can only be reached by climbing the stairs (70 steps).
