Getting There

Our conference site and hotel are easy to get to! 

The El Portal Theatre is conveniently located at 5269 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood 91601, at the corner of Weddington.

It is an easy 10 minute taxi or Uber ride from the Bob Hope/Burbank Airport. Or, take the Metrorail Red Line, which is only one block from both the theatre and hotel!  We are also only one stop from Universal Studios, two stops from Hollywood & Highland (home of the Academy Awards), and three stops from famous Hollywood and Vine.  Or, you could take it all the way downtown to the Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and Disney Hall.

If you’re driving, take the Magnolia exit off the 170 Freeway. Consult the Google map below.

The Holiday Inn Express is located at 11350 Burbank Boulevard, North Hollywood 91601.

We recommend that you park at the hotel and walk to the theatre. If you plan to drive each day, you can find free neighborhood parking, if you’re willing to move your car every once in a while. Or, for pay lots, consult this list.
