** The highly deserving six-time Oscar-winner is BACK with a sandy vengeance! Get your watches in before Furiosa drops **

An apocalyptic story set in a scorched, barren land where the ruins of humanity huddle around Immortan Joe, a tyrant who controls a rare source of water. Held thrall by their thirst, nearly everybody that still draws breath is locked in a mad, incessant struggle, fighting for basic necessities of life. Within this world, two figures emerge whose rebellion against Joe’s order represents a glimmer of hope that the world might not be broken beyond repair – yet. Max, a man of few words, whose only known motivation is to be left alone with the guilt of losing his wife and child – and Furiosa, a woman whose own path of survival also leads back through her past, across the desert wasteland to the community she left behind as a child.

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.
