Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Desperately needing a home to call their own, Philadelphia Film Society bought and restored this Rittenhouse area theater in 2013 and has been screening an assortment of first-run flicks and various special programming ever since. While PFS renovated everything from the floors to the projection system, it must be said that the unyielding seats—which do not recline—and relatively small screens keep the place from being as lovable as it could be. Show up every Wednesday evening for the Roxy’s BYO Night, when you can pair every screening after 7pm with a bottle of wine or beer (note that there’s a $3 convenience charge).
