A non-profit arthouse venue, the Roxy hosts regular weekly screenings of award-winning new and classic films from around the world, and celebrated live events. Wednesday & Thursday nights are devoted to special one-off screenings, community programs, and oddball events.

The three theaters, that 150, 130, and 75 are all equipped with state-of-the-art HD projection and 7.1 Dolby Surround sound. Known as The Empress after Bessie Smith, “The Empress of The Blues”, who died the same day the Roxy opened, September 26, 1937, the third theater is an intimate space for performance of dance, music, comedy and theater.
In addition to an ever-changing line up of exciting programs, The Roxy is also the host venue for many annual events, including our own much celebrated International Wildlife Film Festival, the oldest and longest running wildlife media event in the world.
