If you grew up in Tucson, you might have first walked into The Loft's “Theater 1” for a midnight screening of Rocky Horror Picture show. The auditorium has long been known for its huge screen, which runs independent films.

It’s also known for its creaky old seats. That’s about to change.

Theater 1 reopens this week with brand new seating — described on the Loft’s website as “comfortable” — and a new layout that means even if you end up behind the tallest person in the house, you might still be able to see the screen.

The Loft closed its flagship theater in May and has been operating out of its two smaller auditoriums and at pop up screenings around town.

Dunkirk, shown in 70 mm, will be the inaugural film in the renovated theater, on Thursday at 7 p.m.
