The Roxie Theater is holding its annual fundraiser this year at San Francisco’s celebrated Mission Bowling Club, March 8th 2017 from 6:30pm – 10:30pm. Tickets are on sale – capacity is limited, so grab them now!
Enjoy bowling while you feast on dinner and make merry with luminaries from the Bay Area film world. Tickets are $125, and bowling, dinner and drinks are included at no additional cost with every ticket! Not only that, but a significant part of the ticket will be tax-deductible (receipt sent after the event).
But you don’t have to attend the FUNraiser to still be a part of the fun and Roxie support. We have a Silent Auction with an amazingly eclectic selection of items – perfect for the art-lover, cinema-lover, food-lover, outdoor-lover, and sports fans. These include:

- Lunch for two with Eleanor Coppola

Check them all out here and bid high! Proceeds from all of these donated items will go to help the Roxie.
At 8 o’clock the winners of the auction will be announced followed by our esteemed auctioneer Owsley Brown who will cap off the evening with a live auction of the three highest-bid silent auction items.
If for some reason you can’t make the party or the bids on the auction items are just too high, we have an entire week of films celebrating our 41st anniversary as an arthouse movie theater. Check out one of our amazing anniversary screenings that week.
A San Francisco landmark in the Mission District, the Roxie Theater brings people together to meet and connect through distinctive cinematic experiences. Guided by the passionate belief that engaging with a movie doesn’t end with the credits, we invite filmmakers, curators, entertainers and educators to interact with our audiences. We provide inspiration and opportunity for the next generation, and serve as a forum for the independent film community reflecting the spirit of the diverse Bay Area population. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
