** In an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19, the spring World View Film Series has been canceled along with the cancelation of all events at The Roxy Theater. We will update you if we are able to resume events later in the spring. Stay well, Missoula. **
In the fall of 2018, Global and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with The Roxy Theater inaugurated the World View Film Series, which screens four international movies (either foreign productions or with a focus on a country abroad) in the fall and four in the spring of each year. A five-person committee selects a seasonal focus and the corresponding films.
Udo Fluck hosts the evenings, every second Monday of the month, at 7 PM at The Roxy Theater, located at 718 S. Higgins Avenue. Local artist Courtney Blazon designs the official poster for each fall and spring season.
The film series provides a “Window to the World” for Missoula that is FREE and open to the public!
