CENTER CITY Rittenhouse Sq FINALLY HAS A MOVIE THEATER as THE PFS ROXY THEATER is Open Now

Finally a theater in the Rittenhouse Square area
2021 Sansom Street

John Ciccone, the Roxy’s landlord (he also owns the neighboring Adrienne Theater), and Andrew Greenblatt, PFS Executive Director. After closing the Roxy theater a year ago, John sought out someone in the community that would care about the building, the business and the vision of showing movies. He found that guy in
Andrew Greenblatt, PFS Executive Director and the annual Philadelphia Film Festival.

The two theater’s have been upgraded, and are ADA compliant. It’s a small intimate theater with 80 very comfortable seats, I sat down and you know I’ve had a lot of candy canes in my life. Note the sound waffles on the walls, they worked hard to make sure you don’t hear anything from the theater next door.
They have a digital camera as well as a 35 mm projector, and a Dolby 3.1system,or 8.1 hmm I should have taken notes. Whatever Dolby system it is, it’s the latest. Movie tickets are $13, but if you’re a PFS Member $8 Join Here.
The bathrooms are all ADA compliant
and entire too beautiful for a theater.
There’s an ADA ramp and the back aisle of the theater is reserved for those in wheelchairs. Super beautiful theater, we are so lucky to finally have a first run, movie house in Center City. This place is going to sell out every night. This is a game changer. Thanks.

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of
their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a
promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his
quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly,
uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her
beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the
books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to
go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.

Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort
(Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate
greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a
life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his
early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont
warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking
and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf
pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough
