Nothing says summer in New York City like kicking back on rooftops, enjoying the views, the good company, some good drinks, and—when Rooftop Films is involved—some excellent cinema and music in a uniquely alfresco urban setting.
All the more reason to be thrilled about their 2014 Summer Series, which gives us an incredible amount of opportunities to indulge in this beloved pastime.
Though this Friday’s Ping Pong Summer premiere party (say that five times fast!) complete with après cinema ping pong tournament, live 80’s throwback DJ, and cocktails by local distiller, New Amsterdam Spirits, is not surprisingly all sold out, there are still many more adventures ahead.
Keep checking the Rooftop Films Summer Series schedule, follow them on facebook and twitter, to stay up to date on their latest screenings and events and start planning a particularly cinematic summer!
From their website:
Rooftop Films is known internationally as one of the most dynamic film festivals in the world. In 2012, we screened more than 30 feature films, almost all of which are New York, U.S. or World Premieres. We showed over 150 short films in themed programs which have received accolades for being smart, entertaining, and filled with astonishing movies. This combination of brilliant, original programming and stunning outdoor venues makes Rooftop Films one of the best-attended film festivals in New York. We have also begun to expand to other cites. In recent years, Rooftop screened films outdoors in Los Angeles, Toronto, Philadelphia, Sweden, Texas, Pittsburgh, Camden (Maine) and others. At Rooftop Films, we bring the underground outdoors.
