Are there ID requirements to enter the event?
The good folks at the CBS Security Gate will need to see a government-issued photo ID to match with your name on the list we give them, so make sure you register here and bring your driver's license or passport with you.
What are my parking options getting to the event?
The security personnel will instruct you on where to park when you arrive. This will be based on what other things are happening on the lot that day, so make sure you arrive early enough to walk from where they have you park to MPR-6, the room we will be in that morning. You can ask the security personnel for a map of the lot when you arrive so you can find the building easily. Please do not park on the streets in the neighborhood around the studio lot.
