EGOT extraordinaire Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple, Theodore Rex) stars as our leading lady, the ultra-glamorous Reno nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier. After bearing witness to a violent act (MURDER!) – Deloris finds herself on the lam in an attempt to avoid meeting the same fate. The feds stash her away in the peace and safety of a convent (CHURCH!) where she must learn to blend in among a sisterhood of eccentric nuns. Put in charge of the convent’s choir, Deloris quickly warms to her new environment and finds novel ways to apply her life lessons from Reno casinos. This joyful and hilarious Mourning Sickness Spring Musical is ready to hit some high notes of high camp!

Click for Accessibility Info

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.

The majority of seats in our main cinema are 21″ wide from armrest to armrest; some seats are 19″ wide. We are working on creating the option of removable armrests!

We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.

The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!

If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.

Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
