In October 2018, the Philadelphia Film Society (PFS) transitioned the Prince Theater from a multi-use performing arts facility into the premiere hub for film in Philadelphia. Debuting at the 27th Philadelphia Film Festival, the Philadelphia Film Center moved exclusively to film programming at the start of 2019, with regular first-run and independent films screening daily alongside an increased curated program.
Film on the Mainstage
Join us as we bring the most exciting and anticipated films of the year to the Mainstage, home to the largest screen in Center City.
The Mainstage offers a truly immersive movie-going experience with 7.1 surround sound and the largest conventional cinema screen in Center City for both digital and 35mm presentation.
Film in the Black Box
The Black Box been has upgraded to a state of the art digital presentation with 2K laser projection and 7.1 surround sound. Enjoy a first-run film or one of our special programs in casual cabaret-style seating. Seating is not reserved, though our ushers will help you find a table that best accommodates your group.
