Canyon Cinema COVID-19 Update

Posted March 31st, 2020 in Announcements, News / Events

Following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health officials to contain the spread of COVID-19, and in compliance with the “shelter in place” order issued by the City of San Francisco, Canyon Cinema’s staff is primarily working from home.

If you need to contact Canyon Cinema, please do so via email at A staff person will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Until further notice the Canyon Cinema office is closed to the public. However, we are currently accepting and fulfilling requests for film prints and digital screening files, as well as purchases of DVDs and Blu-Rays (for individual or institutional library use), and Canyon merchandise. Please note that formats and products which require delivery by mail may take longer to process than usual. We are also working to expand the titles in our collection that are available for digital distribution/educational use. A directory of titles available for booking as digital files and/or streaming video links can be found here.

For the time being, all public programs are on-hold. Later this summer we will be relaunching the Canyon Cinema Salons as an online series; stay tuned for more details on our upcoming virtual salons and other collaborative online projects. 

We appreciate your patience, understanding, and support during these challenging times. The safety and wellbeing of our community is our foremost concern. Take care, and stay safe!
