Our Story

Land Acknowledgement

The Loft Cinema acknowledges we are located on the ancestral homelands of the Tohono O’odham Nation and tribal lands of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.

The Loft Cinema works with community voices from the Toho no O’odham Nation and Pascua Yaqui Tribe to bring films, filmmakers, actors and film industry professionals who create visibility and bring awareness to our global indigenous communities to Cuksoñ.


The Loft Cinema is a mission-driven film-based nonprofit arts organization serving Tucson and Southern Arizona and beyond with world class films and unique events.


The Loft Cinema celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022, making it the longest continuously-operating movie theater in Tucson.


The Loft Cinema has 3 screens:

  • Screen 1  –  370 Seats | DCP, 35mm and 70mm projection
  • Screen 2  –    87 Seats | DCP projection
  • Screen 3  –    98 Seats | DCP + 3D projection

This spring, The Loft Cinema is preparing to embark on a construction project to make the entire campus accessible and provide our patrons with a facility that is as excellent as our programming. Please check back for updates, including our plans and the construction schedule here. The final product will include:

  • a new lobby with a new, larger concession stand and new restrooms,
  • a total of four indoor screens and a permanent open air cinema,
  • an elevator to the second floor, which will feature a rooftop bar!


The Loft Cinema offers open captioned screenings for all films that have that option. These screenings are clearly marked on individual film pages when they are available or they can be found here.


The Loft Cinema’s Solar Cinema, a mobile solar-powered screening room, travels to urban neighborhoods and rural communities. Visit our Solar Cinema series page for upcoming screenings.
