Roxie Theater

In honor and celebration of the Clarion Alley Mural Project's 20th Anniversary in 2012, the Roxie invited artists from CAMP to create new murals in theater's Little Roxie lobby, bathrooms, and storefront window. Artists include: Jet Martinez, Kelly Ording, Bunnie Reiss and Ezra Eismont, Daniel Doherty, Rigo 23, Stev Sechovec, Danny Gotimer, and Megan Wilson. 

Additionally the Roxie presented an evening of shorts filmed on Clarion Alley over the past twenty years, including rare archival footage from filmmaker Fiona O'Connor Devereux of the first murals in the Alley, narrated by CAMP co-founder Rigo 23.

The Roxie is the oldest continuously running theater in the United States, and the second oldest in the world, opening at its current location in San Francisco's Mission District in 1909 (the oldest continuously running theater is the Korsor Biograf Teater in Korsor, Denmark, which opened in 1908). It is also the site of the original Mission Dolores in 1776.

The Roxie consistently presents the most thoughtful, experimental, and diverse film arts programming in the Bay Area. Since the seventies the theater has been known for its eclectic selection of art house cinemal. Since 2010 the Roxie has expanded its programming to include more multi-disciplinary events that merge film with performance, music, and/or visual art, in addition to and increase of filmmaker appearances and Q&As.
