The Roxy opened September 26, 1937 and was operating until 1994 when a terrible fire destroyed the theater. In 2002, the International Wildlife Film Festival (founded in 1977) purchased the building and resumed operations as the home of the festival, a media center, and as an educational facility. In August 2013 the Roxy Theater launched year-round programming.
Today the Roxy Theater a revitalized and lively hub for arts & culture. Whatever it takes, the uncompromising dedication and passion of The Roxy is to maintain a safe and inclusive community space for our vital programs.
At 41, The International Wildlife Film Festival is the longest-running wildlife film event on the planet. A cherished perennial springtime event, IWFF brings the world's most innovative and engaging films to you. IWFF values collaboration and stewardship, connecting conservationists, scientists, filmmakers and audiences with a vision of an engaged community that finds itself through cinema and helps the planet to heal.
Thanks to people like you, The Roxy has become a vital resource built with community support. Please give to help us continue as your unique, lively, historic community cinema. We can't do it without you.
