Owner description: Voted BEST OF TUCSON every year since 2002 by readers of the Tucson Weekly, The Loft Cinema is a mission-driven, membership-supported nonprofit cinema that screens new independent American and foreign films and documentaries, along with classic art films, interactive events including a monthly short film contest, sing-a-longs and cult favorites. Patrons can enjoy beer, wine, pizza, tamales along with fantastic films. The main theatre seats 500 people and boasts the largest screen in Southern Arizona. In addition to our regular programming, The Loft hosts an annual international film festival in the fall and a free children's film festival every July. The Loft is a member of the Sundance Institute's Art House Project, based on our excellence of programming and service to the community. In 2012 The Loft was selected to be an official venue of the Sundance Film Festival in their Sundance USA program and we have hosted a screening direct from Sundance with the filmmakers every year since. The Loft is one of 7 American cinemas to be a collaborating partner with Film Forward: Advancing Cultural Dialogue in 2012, an honor The Loft also enjoyed in 2011.

Several intimate theaters in this retro building, nothing fancy but we keep returning because we love the atmosphere, the popcorn and the more "artsy" movies we find here.

Saw Chasing Ice one night, a sobering documentary about the receding glaciers, then the next night we saw film shorts from the Sundance Film festival. What an eclectic mix of fims!

Great place for "Independent Film" lovers to hang out, along with other film lovers, in a quaint intimate setting. The always happening "Special Events" are a major feature of the Loft that help to make it a unique and refreshing entertainment option in Tucson.
