THE LOFT has been Tucson’s Art House for 42 years, the last 12 as a nonprofit.

THE LOFT is one of 17 invited members of the Sundance Art House Project.

THE LOFT is one of 50 cinemas in the US invited by the New York Film Critics to participate in their monthly film series.

THE LOFT is one of nine cinemas selected to be part of Sundance Film Festival USA, becoming an “official venue of the Sundance Film Festival” for one exciting night every year.

THE LOFT hosted 83 filmmakers in 2013, including local, national and international guests.

THE LOFT worked with 79 community partners in 2013.

THE LOFT has screened films from 56 countries.

THE LOFT has been voted Best of Tucson by readers of the Tucson Weekly every year since it became a nonprofit.

THE LOFT is one of 12 top recipients of grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts in 2013 at the same level of funding as the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Tucson Museum of Art and the Mesa Arts Center. The Loft is the only cinema to receive state funding through the Commission.
