10 Years - 100 Movies | 2019 Movies on the Roof

Movies on the Roof is a private movie festival run by Laura Lanford and Thomas Rammer. We screen classic American cinema Tuesday evenings during summer on a rooftop in Printer's Row.

The 2019 Schedule is Here!

Hello Moviegoers,

Welcome to the TENTH year of Ramford House's Movies on the Roof!

This season we'll be hitting a major milestone: 100 MOVIES!

And at 10 years and 100 movies, it's with bittersweet pride we share that this will be our final MotR season. The not-so-short-list of candidate movies is as long as ever and it was a lot of high-stakes discussion for what final seven movies would make the cut!

But we did it, and here they are:

  • July 09 - The Princess Bride (1987)

  • July 16 - Psycho (1960)

  • July 23 - Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

  • July 30 - Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)

  • August 06 - Superman (1978)

  • August 13 - Pulp Fiction (1994)

  • August 20 - 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

For our final screening, August 27, 2019, we return to the first movie we showed in 2010 - Michael Curtiz's all-time classic, Casablanca.

  • August 27 - Casablanca (1942)

It's been a joy sharing some of the best movies of American cinema with you, our dear friends and neighbors. Let's go out with a bang!

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.

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!
