2018 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.

Welcome Moser residents!

Hello Moser Neighbors!  We are thrilled to announce the 2018 Movies on the Roof Season!!

This season features movies spanning 70 years of American cinema, and we invite you to judge for yourself if Clint Eastwood is better as an outlaw or a cop, or if you could keep up with Nick and Nora, or how you'd fare as a con artist!

This year offers a special challenge, and we welcome your vote: Is Citizen Kane or Vertigo the greatest movie of all time?!

Without further ado:

  • July 10  -  Dirty Harry (1971)
  • July 17  -  After the Thin Man (1936)
  • July 24  -  Citizen Kane (1941)
  • July 31  -  Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
  • August 7  -  Inherit the Wind (1960)
  • August 14  -  Vertigo (1958)
  • August 21  -  A Few Good Men (1992)
  • August 28  -  The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly (1966)

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!

And here are some of our resident-focused features:

  1. Residents can reserve seats for themselves and their guests up to a week in advance.
  2. This Resident Portal is not accessible from the main website
  3. As we can no longer put up signage, we’ve supplied guests with a map to avoid people getting lost on their way to the bathrooms (now conveniently located on the Ninth Floor!).
  4. We’re reconfigured our hardware to reduce the volume while still allowing guests to hear the movie.
  5. All amplified sound will be off as soon as practicable and absolutely by 11PM.
  6. As always, the deck will be left as clean or cleaner than we found it.

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,

Tom + Laura
