From the people that bring you Fringe World Festival – Rooftop Movies returns to Northbridge for a 2014/15 season
The pop-up cinema will light up on Thursday 30 October with the opening night screening of sharp NZ comedy What We Do In The Shadows (2014). The full summer season runs through until April 2015. Tickets for the first program are now on sale. The program includes a mix of old-school gems, cinephile classics, cult and art-house movies thrown in alongside the latest blockbuster new releases. It’s this eclectic programming that has seen Rooftop Movies become a much-loved summer destination since popping onto the scene in February 2012.
Rooftop Movies Program Manager, Jessica Darlow says “we want our audiences to make the most of Perth’s balmy summer nights on the Rooftop and in the lead-up to this season we’ve focussed on how we can make the Rooftop Movies experience more comfortable for our punters. Audiences can expect more comfortable seating options and improved bar and snack offerings. We look forward to revealing a few more new surprises in the lead up to the opening event.”
Rooftop Movies is located on the open air, sixth floor of the Roe Street car park in Northbridge. Pedestrian access is off James Street opposite the Piazza Screen. Automobile access to the car park is off Roe Street. The panoramic views of the Perth city skyline provide the perfect backdrop for the venue, which brings the essence of Palm Springs to Northbridge. Think acres of astro turf, palm trees, pink flamingos and vintage caravans…
Tickets are $15 website pre-sale, $16 door-sale and for $10 you can park your car in the Roe Street car park all night from 6pm (prices include booking fees). Popcorn, candy and drinks are available at the rooftop. Rooftop Movies is open nightly, excluding Mondays, from 6pm.
