The Roxy Theater Statement of Unity
The Roxy Theater is a safe space – a place where all are welcome and encouraged to be their true selves.
We are a place of hope, respect, and above all love.
We strive to treat others and ourselves with kindness, honesty, acceptance, respect, and warmth.
We do not discriminate. We accept all regardless of race or gender or identity or ability. We aim to treat all equally, with reverence to their personhood.
The Roxy will not tolerate hate in any of its toxic forms: racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, or bigotry of any kind.
We acknowledge that ever evolving social and political tensions cause real harm to many people in our community, and here at the Roxy we actively work to combat that, and to offer a place where we can continue to work towards progress.
We recognize the power of our differences, and we find unity in our shared values.
We aim to reflect our community, both locally and globally, in our programming and through inclusive representation.
We will not tolerate violence, hostility or threats of any kind. If ANYONE (staff or guest) is creating an environment of violence, of fear or disrespect, they will be asked to leave the premises. If you experience this kind of environment, please alert a staff member.
We wholeheartedly reject the negative spiral of pessimism. We are all in this together. We don’t know where you came from, but we are willing to meet you here. We don’t know where you are headed, but you are absolutely welcome to be here on your way.
Above all, we believe in the power of cinema and community to make the world a better place.
The Roxy Theater gratefully acknowledges
that we rest on the traditional lands of the
Salish people, where they make their home
and speak the Salish language.

Downtown Business of the Year
The Roxy Theater was named the Downtown Business of the Year for its ‘extreme creativity in programming through the pandemic as well as its powerful return to in-person movies.’
After COVID shut down the theater, the Roxy partnered with the Missoula PaddleHeads to create Centerfield Cinema, an outdoor theater at the baseball stadium that helped people stay sane during the pandemic…
We are funded in part by coal severance taxes paid based upon coal mined in Montana and deposited in Montana’s cultural and aesthetic projects trust fund.
