A favourite venue in San Francisco always full calendar of art films + festivals, documentaries, foreign films, short films, and many unusual movies, experimental and cult films - everything outside of the mainstream.

This is an independent neighborhood movie theater that could technically be a multiplex -- there’s the Big Roxie (the one under the marquee, about 200 seats) and the Little Roxie (two doors down with the windows filled with movie posters, about 50 seats). They show...More

I saw "I Called Him Morgan," the documentary about the late trumpeter Lee Morgan here. This place is too cute. It's small, but one get the sense you're sitting in a historic place. If walls could talk...the smell of popcorn as you walk in is...More

Love movies? Then this is the place to be. You really cannot visit San Fran without dropping by, lest you be a philistine. It shows wear and tear, and that's what makes it the Roxie. Also, their selection of old, out-of-the-way and Indie films is...More

This is a wonderful hole in the wall theater. It is small, old, with a vintage feel. It caters to everyone but especially to the queer community. This theater shows hard to find films, vintage films, documentaries, and artistic/creative cinema works. The seats are worn...More

This small theater, for film buffs, offers a wide-range of films. Everything from sci-fi to French Film Noir, Nippon Nights (Japanese Cinema) to Children's Films.

While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
