Welcome to beautiful and historic Missoula, Montana!

Home to scores of writers, musicians, artists, Missoula is a thriving cultural hub, nestled in an idyllic wide valley in the interior rocky mountain west. Somewhere between the romantic American West and the idiosyncratic Pacific Northwest, Missoula is a unique town that somehow feels small and expansive at the same time. The Roxy Theater, Missoula’s Community Cinema is the base for all things MTFF, including screenings, special events and ticketing. Established in 1937, The Roxy is an historic, mission driven nonprofit theater that hosts screenings and events seven days a week including new releases nightly and a monthly calendar of independent, foreign and classic films, theater, and community events whose mission is to inspire, educate & engage diverse audiences about the natural and human worlds through cinematic and cultural events.
