There are so many benefits. It a theater for the thoughtful and for the fun loving. See films not offered in the regular theaters. Films to discuss afterwards. Besides that, they sell beer and if you are a member, you get free popcorn.

I like the selection of films they offer and would love to support them with a membership but I am very frustrated that their hearing units don't work. I have been there 3 time in the last couple of months and sat in various theaters and NONE of the units worked in any of the theaters.

The Theatre is a bit worn, as many indie theatres are, and even a bit funky, with couches in the front row to allow that at home feel. They too are a bit worn. I like Indie films so this is the only choice in Tucson. So When in town - Enjoy and Indie film and carry on.

Looking for a film out of the ordinary? You will likely find it playing at the Loft ... from a black-and-white classic to a creative indie to a great foreign flick. This theatre is an independent, nonprofit art house that focuses on providing experiences that are usually not offered at mainstream, chain theaters. For example, cult favorites play here; an...

The Loft Cinema is a place to see great films that aren't showing anywhere else, which is the core of its charm, but not all of it. The building itself, the staff (the Program Director often introduces movies from an onstage microphone), and the concessions (pizza, tamales, wine, and beer, plus organic popcorn!) all add to a great movie experience!

A quirky, older place that generally presents non-mainstream movies, often in black and white. The seating is comfortable, but the clientele can sometimes be a bit obnoxious if they happen to take exception with something being presented onscreen. Skip the food unless you like it overpriced and slathered in grease. It's an OK one-time experience, but you will have to... More

We're sorry you didn't enjoy the experience more. We're not sure how you got the impression that black and white movies dominate our screens - not that we find anything wrong with black and white films. Only one of our next 40 films is black and white and that is a free screening as part of our classic film series. More

Special and unique movies are offered at the Loft. Many independent movies that will never be in the "regular" theatres or in Redbox. It serves alcohol, great pizza and organic popcorn.

I am a member so I am prejudiced. I love independent movies and this is the place to go. The people are friendly and there are free movies for members and also special events for everyone. It is a Tucson gem.

What a wonderful respite from the chain theaters out there. The selection of films is fantastic all of the time. You're sure to find something to challenge you and make you think. All 3 of the theaters have their own charm, including our favorite in theater 2 where you can snuggle on your own couch :-)

The loft is the only independent movie theater in Arizona. A true community of Tucson hallmark. It has three screens and a wonderful selection of US and international films. Check the weekly schedule in its own phone app. If you live in Tucson you may consider becoming a member and get a free movie every month, two free passes a... More
