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