Barbro Osher Theater

While the Barbro Osher Theater is closed, you can enjoy films selected by our curators in your own home. When you rent a screening through our website, you're supporting both filmmakers and BAMPFA during an especially challenging time for independent cinema.

Rental prices vary, but are typically $8–12 for a multiday viewing window.
