    After a brief stint as a porn theater, Roxie now operates as a not-for-profit movie house. It hosts everything from out-of-print releases and cult classics to the occasional local comedy showcases. Read more

    Built soon after the 1906 earthquake, the Roxie is San Francisco’s oldest operating movie theater and one of a handful of surviving single-screen cinemas in the city.

    Become a member. Free movies and popcorn. A film lovers dream. Great mix of small indies and docs you won't see elsewhere.

    One word: documentaries. Also worth going to their catered "Up The Oscars" event where the awards are presented on the big screen and costume contest winners get year passes. Owned by a cult.

    I value their independent movie selection. It's the SF gem. Seating is odd tho, saving the best viewing area for the use if a hall way...

    On weekend nights, you can hear the music from the bar next door. On the plus side, really interesting movie selection. Weirdly, cash only for tickets but credit cards ok at concession stand

    Watch and indie film and don't forget to put nutritional yeast on your pop corn because you're in San Francisco, hippie.

    On June 19, 1979, Persistence of Vision put on the Third Annual San Francisco Gay Film and Video Festival at the Roxie Cinema. Soon after, Persistence of Vision changed its name and became Frameline.

    The oldest continuously running movie theatre in the USA, since 1909. Home to many great film fests including the San Francisco Green Film Festival in 2014.

    Great cinema. The large popcorn is enough to feed four normal people.

    They just added Visa and Mastercard for tickets *and* concessions so there's no more cash-only issues.
