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.

Movies on the Roof - A History, Year 10: 2019

When we calculated that our 10th season would put us at 100 movies, we realized two things:

  1. We always knew we wanted to end on a satisfying milestone, and this was a great one.

  2. There were SO MANY MOVIES we hadn’t gotten to yet!

Through (metaphorical) tears, we whittled down the list we wanted to share to one season's worth, spanning decades, genres, emotional impact, and reasons for inclusion. From the warmth and campiness of oft-requested “The Princess Bride” to the high concept psychedelics of 2001: A Space Odyssey, we look forward to sharing them with you.

Thank you to everyone for your years of love and support. We hope you join us for our final season. Check back tomorrow for a link to this year’s trailer (after its premiere tonight)  

See you on the roof!!
