San Francisco’s Roxie Theater Raising Funds on Kickstarter

The Roxie Theater

San Francisco’s Roxie Theater, one of the city’s last remaining independent movie theaters, is turning to Kickstarter to help fund much needed upgrades and the theater’s 2012-2013 programming. Founded in 1909, The Roxie is America’s oldest continuously running cinema and is particularly renowned for its lineup of independent and non-traditional films (just ask cult filmmaker John Waters who made a video in support of the Roxie Theather). The theater also plays host to many of San Francisco’s film festivals including SF Indiefest, SF Docfest and Frameline.
