(Note: Not ticketed by NWFF!)
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 (where The Disabled List is hosted). 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.

The Disabled List Comedy Festival is the Pacific Northwest’s first-ever disability-focused comedy festival. Produced and hosted by local comedians Dan Hurwitz and Kayla Brown, it will take place on Jan. 25 & 26 at 7:30pm at the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, WA, with a closing night show at Theatre Off Jackson on Jan. 27 at 8pm.
The Disabled List is a collective of disabled comedians that has been performing in and around Seattle since 2018. In 2021, we produced a short film that debuted at Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings Film Festival and was screened at several other film festivals throughout the state. The Disabled List Comedy Festival will feature filmed sketch and live stand-up by comedians with disabilities, including a couple special guests that are still under wraps.

** Friday's headlining artist! **
Born and raised in Saint Cloud, Minnesota; a city as large as it is small, Comrade Tripp successfully escaped to Minneapolis which is marginally better, where he is a co-producer of Uproar Performing Arts and has been a featured performer of the 10K Laughs Festival.
He has also found another home here on the internet, which is also marginally better than his previous residences. His brand of dark humor has found a place in the ecosystems of the algorithm.
Despite his despondent disposition, he’s a child at heart; insomuch that he cannot be trusted to take care of himself and has no self esteem whatsoever. The rest of his body is very old.
prefers they/them; accepts anything said with good intent
