Screenings at Film Fest Tucson 2019 will take place in the historic Scottish Rite, located at 160 South Scott Avenue, The Fox Tucson Theatre at 17 West Congress, the AC Hotel by Marriott Tucson Downtown at 151 E. Broadway and on our outdoor screen on the North lawn of the Children’s Museum Tucson, 200 S. 6th Ave.
160 S. Scott Ave. The 15,000 square foot Scottish Rite building was built in 1915-1916 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It features three different lodge rooms—some with 35-foot ceilings—that have been transformed into state-of-the-art screening rooms for digital projection of Film Fest Tucson films. While the property continues to be utilized by the Masonic order of Southern Arizona, it has also rapidly become one of the most popular event facilities in Tucson due to its character, location and historical significance. There are three screening rooms in this venue: The Red Room (200 seats), The Purple Room (150 seats) and The Blue Room (120 seats.) Scroll for images of this venue.
