Oster Regent Theater
103 Main Street

The Oster Regent Theatre does not own its own parking lot but there is parking available within 1-2 blocks. The City of Cedar Falls allows parking in the downtown area for two hours Monday through Friday from 9am – 5pm. Most of our shows and events take place on Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoons when there are no parking restrictions. Street parking is available all around the theatre on various streets with a short 1-2 block walk of the theatre. Also, there are several business that allow our theatre patrons to park in their lots when those businesses are closed. That includes the Chamber of Commerce, Tandem Tire, Iowa Sports Supply and NXT Bank. For most of our events, the box office is open 1 hour before the performance so there is plenty of time to find a place to park and enjoy the beautiful historic downtown Cedar Falls prior to show time.
