Oh, how we love our Loft! They feature the indiest of the indies, quirky local film fests, a weekly Rocky Horror Picture Show
screening, foreign films, documentaries, classics and cult faves. The theater even manages to lure industry big-shots such as Philip Seymour Hoffman to our dusty burg on occasion. Recent Loft extravaganzas include a Buffy the Vampire Slayer
sing-along, the Cine Mexico film fest and an all-night horror-movie marathon. To make matters even more delightful, you can sip a glass of wine or down a cold pint of beer while the stories unfold on the big screen. Check the Loft's Web site to stay on top of the never-ending cavalcade of cinematic stimulation.
