Natural Awakenings Tucson

Film Fans Flock to The Loft Cinema

The Loft Cinema is a local nonprofit cinema dedicated to creating community through film, honoring the vision of filmmakers, celebrating ideas and promoting the appreciation and understanding of the art of film. The theatre has been a mission-driven, membership-supported nonprofit arts organization since November 2002, serving the greater Tucson area and all of Southern Arizona.

Without The Loft Cinema, audiences in Southern Arizona would not have access to the many films and visiting filmmakers who have enriched Tucson’s cultural identity. The Loft screens new independent and foreign films and documentaries, along with classic art films, interactive events including a monthly short film contest and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, sing-a-longs and cult favorites. The theatre is also the home of the largest screen in Southern Arizona.

The Loft is a member of the Sundance Institute’s Art House Project, based on its excellence of programming and service to the community. The Loft was selected to be an official venue of the Sundance Film Festival in their Sundance USA program in 2012, 2013 and 2014 (the final year of Sundance Film Festival USA).

Its concession stand features a wide variety of beers, to go along with wine, pizza, tamales, sandwiches, Ethiopian wraps and other traditional and upscale items. The Loft hosts an annual international film festival in November and a free children’s film festival every July.
