We are saving a piece of our rich history and a Setting the Stage for the Future. When we first reopened the theatre in 2018, the community had a priority. They wanted modern-day comfort. We needed new seats with more legroom & cup holders and air conditioning for those warm summer days!
Since the restoration, we have already replaced half of those seats. We continue to lovingly upgrade the building. Most recently an overhaul of the green room and installation of sound and lighting for live community performances. Roxy recently upgraded the heating and cooling system (HVAC) for comfort and energy efficiency. We now have AC! The system was designed to the newest guidelines with fresh air exchange and recommended MERV filters.
Our board of directors passionately raise funds through city & county lodging tax programs, a WA Commerce Building for the Arts grant, numerous corporate donations and foundation grants. We have support from a growing number of generous donors.
We continue to host movies and community events including opera & ballet recitals, comedy shows, concerts, brunches, debates & forums, and presentations. Our art-house cinema programming includes the best in first-run independent film plus, regular block parties featuring classic, cult and fan favorites. We’ve love to host free movies for the community engaging all ages during the Armed Forces Day Festival and the holiday season.

The historic Roxy Theatre is very honored to be the center stage of the developing Quincy Square project in downtown Bremerton. Your donation to the Roxy is greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping us to preserve and protect this wonderful community asset as it plays a key role in the further revitalization of our community.
Setting the Stage for the Future
We are in the final stages to purchase the building. We have raised most of it through grants including the C. Kieth Birkenfeld Trust, Ben B. Cheney Foundation, Cowlitz Indian Tribe, Washington State Building for the Arts, and Bremerton Central Lions. We have also been doing fundraisers and soliciting donations from individual donors.
