Accessibility at the Roxie
The Roxie Theater is dedicated to making movie-going comfortable and accessible for everyone! As a San Francisco Legacy Business constructed before ADA considerations were required by building code, we are limited in the improvements we can make. Nevertheless, we can offer these accommodations:
- Prioritized service at the box office and concessions! Please let the Roxie staff know if you need assistance.
- The Roxie is service dog-friendly at all times.
- We are proud to have all gender neutral bathrooms.
The Roxie Theater has two screens – The Big Roxie (234 Seats) and the Little Roxie (47 Seats). The Big Roxie is our historic theater, built in 1909. The Little Roxie is our smaller theater two doors down but in the same building.
WHEELCHAIR & ADA SEATING (Big Roxie Theater)
All ADA seats are marked with these blue signs:
We have two wheelchair accessible spots with reserved ADA companion spots next to them.
We have 4 other ADA accessible spots on the edge of the rows with more leg room.
These spots are located 1/3 way down our rows of seats in the middle on both aisle sides of the auditorium with very good views of the screen.
You can reserve a wheelchair seat (with a companion seat if needed) by emailing the
theater 3 days ahead of the screening (email@example.com) or calling the office during normal business hours (415-431-3611).
ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES (Big Roxie Theater ONLY)
The Big Roxie has 4 assistive listening devices for our patrons hard of hearing. Please let the Box Office manager know when you arrive if you need these and make sure to wait in the lobby to receive your device. Please note the assistive listening devices will not work with 35mm screenings.
BATHROOMS (Big Roxie Theater)
Unfortunately, our restrooms in the Big Roxie are not wheelchair friendly due to the age of the building, but there are two bathrooms in the Little Roxie theater that are fully ADA accessible. Any Roxie staff member or volunteer can show you where those are and escort you if needed. Both bathrooms are gender neutral.
WHEELCHAIR & ADA SEATING (Little Roxie Theater)
We have two wheelchair accessible spots in the Little Roxie Theater. One ADA spot is in a larger seat with more leg room and a blue ADA sign, the other is a space for a wheelchair. You can reserve a wheelchair seat (with companion seat if needed) by emailing the theater 3 days ahead of the screening (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calling the office during normal business hours (415-431-3611).
BATHROOMS (Little Roxie Theater)
We have two gender neutral bathrooms that are wheelchair friendly and have rail bars.
OPEN CAPTIONING (Installation goal May 2018)
While the order went into effect on January 17th of 2017, the compliance date by which theaters must have the equipment installed and operating is June 2nd, 2018.
Our goal is to have Open Captioning devices installed in both theaters by May of 2018 with support of a generous grant from GFTA’s Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund.
Please see section 9 for more information on the captioning rule: https://www.ada.gov/regs2016/movie_captioning_qa.html
Our goal is to make sure EVERYONE can enjoy the Roxie!
If you have questions, feedback, or special accessibility needs please email email@example.com or call the office 415 431 3611 during normal business hours M-F 10 – 6pm.
