Set the scene today for the Roxie’s tomorrow! 


As we close out 2019, we are thrilled with the year we’ve had, bringing our community an unparalleled slate of films and cinema experiences that have entertained us and enriched our lives. This year has brought:

  • Q&As with filmmakers such as Joe Talbot (The Last Black Man in San Francisco) and Isaac Julien (Frantz Fanon: Black Skin, White Mask);
  • Premieres of female-directed independent films like Always in Season (Jacqueline Olive) and For Sama (Waad al-Kateab);
  • Documentaries that compelled us to better understand our world like Gay Chorus Deep South and Fantastic Fungi;
  • Repertory cinema on 16mm and 35mm that celebrates celluloid like Barbara Hammer: Cinema of Intimacy and All That Jazz;
  • Community partner screenings with the Dreamer Fund (Undocumented), The Tenderloin Museum (Drugs in the Tenderloin), Canyon Cinema (Chick Strand: Ambient Dew Point) and (Purple Rain);
  • RoxCine’s program of exceptional Spanish-language cinema including the return of Hecho en Mexico and Over the Wall: Shorts and Discussion;
  • And a venue for our local film community including festivals like the SFFILM, SF Indie Fest, Transgender Film Festival, CAAM, Frameline, Arab Film Festival, and more.

Through these events and so many others, we have strived to make an impact in our community by gathering people together to connect and engage with transformative stories in cinema. Thank you for being a part of our audience and diving into diverse film programming with us.
