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.
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 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.

Liminality is inspired by reimagining what Odette may have experienced upon plunging to her death in the lake from the classical ballet Swan Lake. It is a moment of suspended reality and a story of disenchantment, self-discovery and transformation.

Arrawraw is a dreamlike piece in which dance takes us to a familiar and yet magical place – a journey to the origins of each one of us, to the common origin of all – the beginning.

A naked man is fast asleep, surrounded by the sounds of his dreams. He wakes up alone in an unfamiliar area, hearing a mother’s Voice drawing him in; but as soon as he is ready to answer, the Voice is silent.

The World, 2020. The body isolated, the mind in contact. How many flaws and powers inhabit the cloistered human being?
