The 2018 edition of the Rooftop Series presented by Rohrbach Associates PC Architects opens with a high-flying comedy classic plus laser lessons on the roof. Again this year, co-sponsor Big Grove Brewery is bringing the beer!
Thirteen Sundays (and one Wednesday!), summer through fall, featuring well-loved classics, beneath the stars and above the streets of Iowa City. You never know what we’ll add to each screening to butter up your Rooftop experience. Join us for these very fun, special shows, and buy tickets early as seating is limited, and Rooftop shows do sell out! Doors open with seating and pre-show fun at 8pm. Screening at dusk. In the case of inclement weather, the screening will occur indoors.
About the film: Join us for the last Rooftop Series show of the season, a special screening of the Coen Bros. darkly comic-crime classic. Frances McDormand stars as a pregnant police chief investigating a series of homicides across the frozen tundra. Against a sprawling Minnesota landscape, a car salesman (William H. Macy) hires two criminals (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife. But when the scheme goes sour, wood chippers get involved, and the haphazard kidnapping plot turns deadly serious. Winner of two Academy Awards.
Come huddle with us to close down the Rooftop for 2018. It’ll be a nice time, yah, you betcha!
