BABIES ON BOARD
Grab your stroller and join us for Babies on Board screenings every Wednesday!

To accommodate film lovers with infants, the PFS Theater at the Roxy invites new parents and caretakers to bring their children to the theater to catch a new release while avoiding the social limitations of the traditional theater experience.

Volume is lowered just a bit and fussing, giggling, and sleeping are no problem.  The films will screen at matinee times and ticket prices– and the little ones are always free!
