August Renovations Announcement
August 22, 2016: Update
Northwest Film Forum continues to remodel our venue to improve your experience in our venue. The theater opens again on August 24th for Wedding Doll at 8pm with limited concessions as we continue to install the new box office counter.
Renovations include expanding the lobby, building a new box office, launching faster POS stations, installing sound-proofed doors in the cinemas, and making improvements to the exterior of the building in preparation for a new awning in the fall.
- Equipment rental, venue rental, and the edit suite remain on break. Take this short survey to help us improve these services.
