Visited the Oriental Theater to see The Cher Show before it hits Broadway. The Oriental Theater is beautiful and not a bad seat in the house.

Thank you for your question, however I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are referencing buses, I am not aware of any specific pick up or drop off points.
