Campaign for The Loft Cinema

The Campaign for The Loft Cinema will fund a renovation and expansion of our campus that will transform the space and provide accessibility for all while enhancing the audience experience for decades to come!

The time has come for The Loft Cinema’s campus to match our world-class programming!





The Loft Cinema is a cherished institution in Southern Arizona, enriching our community for over 50 years. At our core, community drives everything we do, from showcasing new independent films from the U.S. and around the world to beloved classics and vibrant film festivals.

With the addition of two new screens, we’ll be able to screen more films, keep them longer, and offer additional showtimes. This will enhance our booking flexibility, providing our customers with more moviegoing options. Simultaneously, we are committed to transforming The Loft Cinema into a sustainable and inclusive gathering place by ensuring full accessibility across our entire campus. Our vision is bold and transformative, aiming to make The Loft Cinema a destination for all.


The campus transformation begins in July 2024 with a target completion date of summer 2025. We’ll remain open throughout the construction.


New Lobby Space – the new heart of The Loft, where moviegoers gather with seamless access to the whole campus, including screens, concessions and restrooms.


Incredible New Viewing and Gathering Experience – a new indoor fourth screen will offer flexible seating with a mix of luxury loungers, sofa, and beanbags. A permanent open-air theater will welcome audiences, along with a rooftop bar and a renovated Screen 2 which will offer more luxury seating.


New Restrooms, Doors, Theaters – an elevator to the second floor will provide access to the rooftop bar and Screen 2, and all doors will have automatic openers.


Re-imagined Concessions – a new menu emphasizing locally-sourced food, beverages, and wine. There will be minimal wait times and plenty of space to get your fare and get to your movie.


Your support of the Campaign for The Loft Cinema will provide the funds necessary to make your experience at The Loft better in every way.
