Top Down: Rooftop Cinema Kicks Off on Thursday!

TopDownnewsroompic

Two excellent dudes rocket through time while a bicyclist glides towards modernity.  An Appalachian mountain dancer busts a move as Fred and Ginger twirl through the night.  Sexy vampires seek a third for nocturnal fun and games and a human chameleon pops up in all the right (and wrong) places.  It’s the return of Top Down: Rooftop Cinema, your ticket to summer, music, and cinema under the stars.

Join the Northwest Film Center atop Hotel deLuxe’s parking structure at SW 15th and Yamhill for our ninth annual program of Top Down: Rooftop Cinema.

Doors open at 7 PM with food and beverages available for purchase from Gracie’s Restaurant, Portland Brewing Company, and Honest Tea and live music from local bands brought to you by Music Millennium. The music begins at 8 PM, and the movies start at dusk.

Due to capacity restrictions, arrival by 8:30 PM is recommended. Some seating is provided, but feel free to bring a chair, pillow, or blanket and a light sweater or jacket. Please, no pets or outside food or drink. Thanks to our sponsors: Hotel deLuxe, Peter Corvallis Productions, Music Millennium, Honest Tea, Portland Brewing Company, Car2Go, Portland Mercury, Yelp! Portland, KIND Healthy Snacks, PDX Pipeline and 94/7 FM.
