OUR MISSION

The Roxy is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire, educate & engage diverse audiences about the natural and human worlds through cinematic and cultural events. Programs include year-round cinematic and cultural programming at the Roxy, the annual International Wildlife Film Festival the Montana Film Festival, and educational programs under the Roxy Film Academy. The Roxy Film Academy is a leader in the filmmaking community and provides education for youth, production support, promotion and excellence in film exhibition for Montana films and filmmakers. 

The Roxy hosts screenings and events seven days a week including new releases nightly and a monthly calendar of independent, foreign and classic films, theater, and community events.  We are merging community, cinema and education with the help of our community, volunteers and our members in the heart of Downtown Missoula, Montana. Enjoy great films with triple-organic popcorn, beer and wine and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound in our three theaters.

HISTORY

The Roxy opened September 26, 1937 and was operating until 1994 when a terrible fire destroyed the theater. In 2002, the International Wildlife Film Festival (founded in 1977) purchased the building and resumed operations as the home of the festival, a media center, and as an educational facility. In August 2013 the Roxy Theater launched year-round programming.

Today the Roxy Theater a revitalized and lively hub for arts & culture. Whatever it takes, the uncompromising dedication and passion of The Roxy is to maintain a safe and inclusive community space for our vital programs.

At 42, The International Wildlife Film Festival is the longest-running wildlife film event on the planet. A cherished perennial springtime event, IWFF brings the world's most innovative and engaging films to you. IWFF values collaboration and stewardship, connecting conservationists, scientists, filmmakers and audiences with a vision of an engaged community that finds itself through cinema and helps the planet to heal.

Thanks to people like you, The Roxy has become a vital resource built with community support. Please give to help us continue as your unique, lively, historic community cinema. We can't do it without you.
