Questionable Renovations and Flow

The University of Winnipeg renovated a theatre on the edge of their campus. The entry on Memorial was deemed insufficient and has been closed up. Instead, they offer a long ramp off a side entrance. 

If there is a lineup down this ramp, a person in a wheelchair could have difficulties (breaking and pushing on an incline doesn't sound easy to me). And this doesn't seem like it will be easy to leave in case of emergencies.
At least there's bike parking. And preventing entry from Memorial, where there is not a safe drop off spot (traffic flows quickly by this area), may have been a smart move. But I have yet to be convinced that this new entrance is sufficient.

I also want to show the nearby door for the main buildings of UofW.

No Entry. And I didn't take a photo of the middle of the block where there is a lovely chain-link fence. 
So don't think about going to the the main campus buildings from the theatre!
