The Loft Cinema
The Loft Cinema is a nonprofit, community-supported cinema that is Tucson’s premiere venue for art films – independent, foreign, alternative and classic narrative films and documentaries. Since The Loft was purchased in 2002 and transitioned into a nonprofit arts organization, the cinema has hosted more than 400 filmmakers and scholars and screened films from more than 56 countries. In 2008, The Loft was one of 17 mission-driven, community-based cinemas in the US invited by the Sundance Institute to join its Art House Project. The selection was based on excellence in programming and community involvement.
