    I want this so badly. The view! The movies! The food! The DRINKS!! Please choose me for these awesome tickets! I need some adult time. :)

  2. Allison July 16, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    Moving here from NW Arkansas only a month ago means that I have only dabbled in experiencing some interesting culture, cool sights, awesome bands in the area, great food, and have never done anything like this before! This small town girl would love to go to this event!! And I like bikes!! I knew enough to subscribe to this site so I would know the latest on what was going on in Portland and take advantage of every opportunity! I have made some new friends and would love to show them a night on the town–or on the roof, for that matter!

  3. Archell Banta July 16, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    I would love to add this to my summer experiences. I miss living in Portland.

  4. Matt Shoobridge July 16, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    Something that I haven’t done in Portland but would love too!

  5. Megan July 16, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    I’m going whether I win tickets or not, but it’d be nice to win. I’m also hoping to hit up Zelig and Swing Time.

  6. Sharon Grant July 16, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    I turned 60 this summer and I’m celebrating until Labor Day. What a great addition to the party this would be.

  7. Sally Marsh July 16, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    As I’m looking at your web site, I’m taking care of my 3 grandkids, ages 2,4 and 5 for 7 days so mom and dad could go on a second honeymoon before he deploys again. They are an Air Force family and this will be his 9th deployment. I try to give them as many breaks from the kids as I can. I would love some “Mimi time” when I get back to PDX.

  8. Audrey July 16, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    Ahh I have never heard of something so cool. I would love to be able to go to rooftop movies!

  10. Julie July 16, 2013 at 3:24 pm #

    I have heard about the awesome rooftop movies, but have never been…and I’m unemployed, so this would be free entertainment for a girl that cannot afford it otherwise. :) Please?

  11. Rachael July 16, 2013 at 3:25 pm #

    I would love to take my boyfriend to this and watch a cool movie on a rooftop. It sounds amazing!

  12. Zach Paredes July 16, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

  13. Bill W. July 16, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

  14. Scott July 16, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

  23. Kelli July 17, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    Been in Portland only one year and this is the first I’ve heard of this film opportunity. This city gets better and better. Would love to win tickets for this unique event!

  24. Erin July 17, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    Thank you for offering this opportunity. Whoever wins the ticket will be very lucky, indeed. Free tickets would be so great. I would be delighted to win these tickets so that I can take my friend to experience Top Down. We both love French New Wave–I’m interested to see an earlier French movie, especially since it’s about bikes.

    Thank you.

  25. Shelley July 17, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

    Ever since ‘the office’ ended, I hate Thursdays. Help!

  26. Nancy Guyer July 18, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets. I have always wanted to attend, and now maybe I have the chance. Pick this 60 year old Social Work senior, and help her get some needed self-care and fun time. Pick me~

  27. April July 18, 2013 at 1:12 pm #

    I lived here for 2yrs now and just heard about this event a couple weeks ago. It is already in my calendar and I am riding my lil rebuild cruiser bike there. Cheers!

  30. Kristen July 18, 2013 at 2:31 pm #

    This would be so great! My fiance and I are always on the lookout for stuff to do around town that won’t break the bank (I work for a non-profit children’s theater and he’s a journalist, so our bank is pretty much made of ultra-thin porcelain), and this seems so darn fancy! Swanky rooftop, great movies, delicious boozes… So romantic! I would even wear makeup and everything!

  31. Christina Archambault July 18, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    This would be a perfect date night!! Much needed! We have been soo busy!

  32. viola rose July 18, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    I would love to win. My bf is here for the summer. We live in different states. We love movies and drinking and foods!!

  35. Jamie July 18, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    Maybe all the winners could meet up for rooftop drinks, afterwards! This is the best Portland summer evening…drinks, movie, sun settin’ over the skyline… We’re so lucky.

  36. Melanie July 18, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    To view a movie under the stars
    With my honey in the light from Mars
    We could savor our favorite chocolate bars
    Thankful for the melodious guitars

    This new experience would bring delight
    Without us, our three children will be alright
    We need to snuggle devoid of a mosquito bite
    To end the anticipation of a good night

  37. Aaron July 18, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    Je voudrias especialmente voir le film du velo! I’d especially love to see the bike film! Rooftop magic.

  38. Meg July 18, 2013 at 3:23 pm #

    Oh magical PDX pipeline gods, please send me to the rooftop cinema!

  39. Laura July 18, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    I went to one of the films last year and it was so magical on the roof. It represents everything I love about Portland in the summer.

  40. Shelly July 18, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    My friends and I did it for the first time last year and it was a fantastic evening. Couldn’t wait one more minute for these to get posted. Loved the venue, food & eclectic mix of movies. Win me please! :)

  41. Claire July 18, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

  42. Jessi W. July 18, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    it is nearly criminal all the things there are to do in portland in the summer. i’m just gonna burrow down into them all and never resurface. yep, that sounds like a solid plan. (p.s. plz give me tickets to this. husband has a projector in the basement and keeps a list of all criterion films he has watched so far, and we own at least two tati films and have never seen this one.)

  43. Mikey B July 18, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

    Sounds like fun. Hope I can join.

  44. Tina July 18, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

  46. Jason July 18, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    I haven’t seen any indie films in a while, so i’m due!

  47. Kyle July 18, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    I’ve never been to the rooftop cinema and it would be the illest ticket hookup ever!

  48. Dayan Morgan-Sylvaen July 18, 2013 at 6:04 pm #

    These roof top shows are one of my favorite parts of the Portland summer!

  49. Alex July 18, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

  50. Mason July 18, 2013 at 7:11 pm #

  51. Jasmine July 18, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    When I come home feelin’ tired and beat
    I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof top cinema)
    I get away from the hustling crowd
    And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof top cinema)
    On the roof, the only place I know
    Where I just have to wish to make it so
    Pick me to go up on the roof (up on the roof top cinema)!!!

  68. Liz July 21, 2013 at 10:42 am #
