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.

There is everything to enjoy and like about this not for profit theater. We watched a free film outdoors on Saturday eve and then joined the festival on Sunday for a chat and a film. We then became members.

I usually don't get excited about movie theaters but the Loft is so different. It's not a theater; it's an experience. It's a local movie house showing some first runs, some limited showings and some old/artsy movies. It's so hard to classify this place but...More

The Loft is a Tucson tradition. It's run by a non-profit and shows mostly Indie films. Comfortable seats and great popcorn with REAL BUTTER, not that nasty yellow junk.

Loved it when it was in its old funky building on 6th. This place is certainly more upscale. Bottom line is I love what they do and the movies they showcase.

The greatest movie house in Arizona. We have been going to the Loft since it was at U of A campus area decades ago, and they never disappoint, which is why we are Loft members.

This is the place to go to see old and special movies. It is especially nice to be able to go during the day when it's not too crowded.
