The Downtown Independent is located at:

251 S. Main St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012

It’s on the west side of Main St. downtown, between 2nd and 3rd Streets. It’s a beautiful building made mostly of white stone and glass. It’s so beautiful, in fact, that you might not think comedy belongs inside at all. But you would be wrong, my friend. You would be wrong. Right next to the theater, you’ll see a storefront with the title “NO AGE / Weirdo Rippers”. It’s quite the Los Angeles indie rock landmark, actually, but we’ll talk about that another time.

There’s plenty of parking in the area. The theater itself doesn’t have a parking lot, but there’s plenty of metered street parking on Main St. and Spring St. (the next street west from Main), and a bunch on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, as well. All the meters are free after 7 pm (unless temporarily marked otherwise), so finding a space shouldn’t be a problem. For extreme ease, there are two paid lots, one on either side of the theater, that each cost in the realm of $5 to park and are open until 2 am or later.
