How to get here, where to park


The Smith Opera House, at 82 Seneca Street, is located in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region in Geneva, less than 10 minutes from the New York State Thruway, making it accessible from points north, south, east and west. Syracuse, Rochester and Ithaca are all only about an hour away. See map below.

FROM THE NYS THRUWAY: Take Exit 42 (Geneva/Lyons) and merge onto Route 14 South toward Geneva. Continue about 5.8 miles. Route 14 eventually turns into Exchange Street as you approach downtown Geneva. Once on Exchange Street, turn right onto Seneca Street. The Smith Opera House is about 1/10th of a mile on the right.


There are several public parking lots within walking distance to the theater. One is right across the street from The Smith on Seneca Street. Click here for a map. Street parking is also readily available.
