Jones Beach Theater Seating Options

Jones Beach Theater offers four levels of seating. Nearest to the stage is the Orchestra level, with two stadium seating levels behind. At the back and raised above the rear of the stadium seats is the Mezzanine level. Each section provides outdoor stadium-style cushioned seats with armrests. You will probably benefit from using binoculars on the Mezzanine and rear stadium section.

Orchestra Level Tickets

Jones Beach Theater Orchestra level is divided into Front Orchestra Sections A to D, containing Rows A through U. Section A is in the center, with C to its right and B and D to its left.

Rear Orchestra Sections E to H contain Rows AA to VV, with E and F in the middle, G to the right of them and H to the left.

Front Orchestra seats are close up against the stage, while Rear Orchestra seats are behind the Boxes. The Orchestra level is flat, so people at the back may struggle to see over those in front of them.

Sometimes Sections A to D will be removed or changed to provide a general admission pit without seats. This will get you right up close to the stage, but it’s first come, first served.

Stadium Level Seating

Stadium level seats at Jones Beach Theater are divided into 1 (front) and 2 (rear) levels, but these seats are raked so you’ll have a better view. Sections are numbered from right to left.

Stadium 1 seats comprise Rows A to T, with odd numbered sections from 1 to 15. All sections except 1 and 15 are further divided into Left and Right. VIP Club Decks are situated on the outside of these sections, with some standing room below on the right-hand side.

Stadium 2 seats comprise Rows AA to XX, with even numbered sections from 2 to 16, with Right and Left parts for all except 2 and 16.

Mezzanine Level Seating

The Mezzanine level at Jones Beach Theater is numbered from right to left, sequentially from 17 to 27. Rows go from A to V, with an aisle behind Row E to accommodate accessible seating. These seats are the highest and furthest away from the stage. You’ll still get good views, but you may need binoculars to get the best advantage. From here you’ll be able to see the ocean and the surrounding scenery!

The seats at the front of the Mezzanine level offer better sight-lines and access to amenities. This level hangs over Stadium level seats and Suites, so it’s closer to the stage than you might think.

Jones Beach Theater Suites

At the rear of Stadium 2 are 22 Suites, located underneath the Mezzanine level.

Numbered right to left, Suites 1 to 15 are in the center, and Suites 16 to 22 on the left. Each is totally private, with its own bathroom and a separate entrance.

Suites can hold up to 12 patrons, and can be sold as entire or shared. The entire suite is good for groups, families, etc. If you purchase tickets in a shared suite, a seat will be randomly assigned.

Jones Beach Theater Boxes

Orchestra Boxes are semi-private areas that hold up to 8 patrons. The same seating situation applies to entire or shared Boxes as with Suites. They’re in a prime location right behind Orchestra Sections A to D, and in two Rows. Seats are numbered right to left, from 1 to 21 in the front row and 22 to 42 in the rear. A further three rows of boxes are located in front of Sections E and F, numbered right to left.
