Welcome (hopefully!) to the MotR 2017 Season!
Welcome (hopefully) to the eighth year of Ramford House's Movies on the Roof!
This year’s season is contingent on a vote by our condo board on July 5th. We hope it will be in our favor, but please keep an eye on this website and Facebook page in case we’re forced to find another venue or (!) cancel this season.
Movies on the Roof is a private movie festival run by Laura Lanford and Thomas Rammer.
We screen classic American cinema Tuesday evenings during the summer on a rooftop in Printer's Row. After sunset we start our pre-show and presentation, giving our audience the mood and cultural context for the feature presentation.
This year's movies will explore the themes of politics, love, and leadership. Here is the summer's scheduled line-up for 2017!
- The Great Dictator (1940)
- Fail Safe (1964)
- Robin Hood (1973, animated)
- All the King's Men (1949)
- The Lion in Winter (1968)
- State of the Union (1948)
- Advise & Consent (1962)
- The American President (1995)
Good stuff we're keeping from past years:
- Curated pre-show with newsreels, shorts, cartoons and/or commercials from the year the movie debuted.
- The offer to join us anytime after 5:30pm to enjoy the rooftop deck and a playlist of the top hits of the appropriate year.
- Ice chest and grill available for those who would like to bring grillables or drinkables.
- A chance to appreciate (and donate, if you feel like it) to our themed charity for each movie.
- FRESH FREE POPCORN!
Movies on the Roof is absolutely free to attend. This is a labor of love: nothing is required beyond your invite and a willingness to have a good time!
Hope to see you soon,
