Philadelphia Film Society Rescues Historical Roxy Theater, Begins Raising Funds for Renovations and Upgrades
Score one for the good guys. Instead of disappearing like so many other great old theaters in recent years, the Roxy in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square has been saved, at least temporarily, by the Philadelphia Film Society. With a long-term lease secured and renovations in mind, the Pfs will take over site management with an eye toward year-round film programming and events. “We are absolutely thrilled to be taking over the management and operations of the historical and beloved Roxy, making it the new home for the Philadelphia Film Society,” said Pfs executive director J. Andrew Greenblatt. “We intend to make the Roxy a hub for the Philadelphia film community, booking diverse and captivating programming, offering education courses and producing special events similar to venues such as the Alamo Drafthouse theaters, the Film Forum in New York and Coolidge Corner Theater in Boston.” Read More: Alamo Drafthouse to Open NYC Theater The Pfs.
