Rooftop Films opening 2009 @ Open Road Rooftop (more by Ryan Muir)
Rooftop Films

Rooftop Films will open this year with a May 14th film & music event at Open Road Rooftop (above New Design High School, 350 Grand St in NYC), with music from Twin Sister (who have shows at a taqueria and elsewhere coming up). From there, the series will program movies and bands every weekend through August 15th.

On Friday, April 16th (tonight), there's a special pre-summer-season event with Norway's Hanne Hukkelberg at the Open Road Rooftop. Along with her set will be "a special presentation of Knut Eric Jensen's fantastic documentary, Cool & Crazy, a portrait of the dedicated members of Norway's Berlevag Male Choir." The unsubtitled trailer for that film is below. Tickets are on sale.

The schedule hasn't fully been announced yet, but what has, and a clip of last year's Troll 2 screening, are also below...

Rooftop Films is awesome! I went last year, and it was so cool. They always have really great music, too, which is my favorite part.

When I want a unique atmosphere I definitely appeal to such a location. It is true that the atmosphere of the location dictates the evolution of the event.

I was there and I must say the show was really unique and in other words it was quite refreshing.
