The Mission

Beginning in 2013, the historic Roxy Theater became the new home of the Philadelphia Film Society (PFS). The new PFS Theater at the Roxy is located at 2023 Sansom Street in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia. Consisting of two row homes, the Roxy has functioned as a two screen movie theater since 1975.

PFS will operate the Roxy as a first-run theater, with an emphasis on independent films, many of which presently cannot be seen theatrically in Philadelphia. The PFS Theater at the Roxy will program an array of highly anticipated new films along with repertory cinema not widely available in the city and will also offer educational programs focused on film and filmmakers, designed for students of any age.

Where Are We Now?

The PFS Theater at the Roxy has undergone major renovations. The building required significant structural repair which afforded the opportunity to make changes to create the best possible movie going experience in the space. The first round of renovations consisted of adding new seating, new floors, new digital projection in both theaters and an additional 35MM reel to reel projection system in one theater, new screens, and a new sound system, and washrooms. We are very pleased to also have made the Roxy ADA accessible. The new lobby and concession stand are still undergoing construction.
