Guidelines for Enjoying the PROXY Fall Film Festival



Screenings are free and open to all located at the corner of Hayes and Octavia. People are welcome to drop in throughout the evening.

Content Suitability

Our mission is to introduce the best of new film to as wide an audience as possible. Some themes and content, however, may not be for everyone. We’ve provided ratings when available, but please review each film to make an appropriate personal judgement for you and your family.


Space at the PROXY Walk-in Movie Theater is first come, first served. We recommend arriving early to claim a good spot on the lot and get settled in. Bring blankets, low chairs, and anything else you need to sit comfortably on the ground, taking reasonable care not to block the view of those around you. (No barcaloungers, please!) Limited seating also will be available.

Food and Drink

We will have food for sale on site, but festival goers also can enjoy take out from the Hayes Valley’s many great restaurants or pack a picnic from home. Please note: No personal alcohol is permitted at the PROXY site, but we will have beer for sale at each screening with proceeds supporting ongoing film programming and other events at PROXY.


If rain is in the forecast (remember rain?), check our web site for any weather-related schedule changes. Otherwise come prepared with warm layers to stay comfortable.


Hayes Valley is well served by San Francisco’s transit systems and bicycle network. We encouraging using alternative transportation to attend the PROXY Fall Film Festival, but limited parking is available in nearby garages.
