Virtual Cinema Night!

Virtual Cinema Night!Several of our local Theaters have created virtual cinema series for in-home streaming during these times of COVID-19. Watch these art house films at your convenience while supporting local cultural institutions to stay afloat during this industry-wide financial crisis.

Combined, these theaters present an impressive list of high-quality films for you to choose from!

Smith Rafael Film Center has created Rafael@Home to ensure that the California Film Institute remains a cultural institution in the years ahead. They have a line up of great films and some of them include talks with the directors. Features include Quarantine Cat Film Festival, Ella Fitzgerald, Aviva, Take Me to the River, and The Bikes of Wrath.

Check out their full listing on the Smith Rafael website.

In a unique partnership with some of the most inventive film distributors, 50% of each ticket purchased will go to support the Roxie and help them return as a vibrant, community-centered non-profit cinema. Playing this week includes Have You Seen Her, La Misión?, We Are Little Zombies, Guest of Honor, The 11th Green, and John Lewis: Good Trouble.

The Balboa Virtual Screening Room
Located in the Outer Richmond, the Balboa has been showing movies since 1926 and they still serve popcorn made with real butter. Since we can’t get out to the Avenues, we can enjoy a great selection of movies at home including The Last Tree, My Darling Vivian, Queen of Lapa, Plimpton!, Picture of His Life, Pahokee, and Lucky Grandma.
