The Roadhouse Cinema Trailblazers have been quietly transforming the Arizona landscape.
This past spring, the Arizona Association of Theatre Owners (AATO) launched a program called “Roadhouse Week” to celebrate the cinema and the unique film industry in the state.
In 2018, the AATO awarded Roadhouse Week awards to the five films that received the most nominations and awards in each category, and the five highest-scoring films won awards.
“We’re really proud to be recognized by the AASO and our fellow theater owners and stakeholders as the first to receive Roadhouse Month Awards, as well as the fifth to win the 2017 Award of Excellence in Roadhouse,” said Roadhouse director and cinematographer Alex O’Connor.
The award recognizes films that are unique, innovative, entertaining and original.
The Roadhouses are an example of how a small team of passionate and creative people is taking cinema to a whole new level and is transforming the way we watch films in Arizona.
Roadhouse cinema is currently in production on its upcoming feature film, The Lost and Damned, and is in the early stages of shooting its next feature film.
Roadhouses have been operating for over 30 years and are a testament to the quality of cinema in Arizona and beyond.
Road house cinemas are located in Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Flagstaff, Tucson, and Tempe City Center.
The majority of Roadhouse cinemas operate as community theaters with their own parking lots.
AASOTO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
