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 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.

(Clyde Petersen, Washington, 2022, 109 min, in English)
Earth, the slowest metal band on the planet, has been conjuring tectonic changes in music since 1989. The band created a glacially paced subgenre of metal and played a pivotal role in the popularization of grunge, all while visionary frontman Dylan Carlson was battling small-town boredom, heroin addiction, and the tragic death of his roommate and best friend, Kurt Cobain.
Despite the decibel level of its beloved and beautiful drone metal, Earth has rarely had much to say for itself. Clyde Petersen’s Even Hell Has Its Heroes is a moving saga that traces Earth’s could-have-been-tragic trajectory for the first time, with equal respect for the music, the ragtag eccentrics who channel it, and the surreal majesty of the Pacific Northwest that shaped the band’s sound.
A deep portrait of a slow band that changes everything it touches.
