In 2002, a dedicated group of Tucsonans joined together to purchase and revitalize The Loft as a 501(c)3 non-profit. A Tucson fixture and cultural gem, The Loft is a vibrant arts organization, making our culturally-rich community even more interesting. What we hear the most from people is how much The Loft adds to their quality of life – and that they are grateful, knowing that many cities don’t have an independent art cinema, and certainly not many cities the size of Tucson.

Your gift today helps us continue to provide top-notch programming, free and low cost programming, a committed staff and a wonderful group of volunteers. Your contributions are a significant part of our revenue, we need your support to sustain our mission.

The Loft Cinema is a 501(c)3 (nonprofit) organization and donations are tax deductible.

There are several charitable giving opportunities for individuals, organizations, and corporations to help the The Loft Cinema continue to grow
