Join us atop the Hotel deLuxe’s parking structure at SW 15th and Yamhill for our 12th annual program of cinema under the stars. Doors open at 7 pm with food and beverages available for purchase from Gracie’s, Aladdin’s Café, Brass Tacks Sandwiches, and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.
Music begins at 8 pm and films begin around dusk. Entry for advance ticket holders is guaranteed until 8:30 pm. Advance tickets ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee entry after 8:30 pm. A limited number of chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so feel free to bring a chair, pillow, or blanket, along with a light sweater or jacket. Advance ticket holders who arrive after 8:30 pm but are not admitted to the screening (in the case of a sell-out) may exchange their tickets for another Top Down screening. There are no refunds or exchanges for arrivals after the film begins (c. 9 pm) or for entirely missed screenings. Please, no pets or outside food or drink.
August 11: Attack the Block
Eschewing the tired military defensive strategies of Hollywood alien invasion films like Independence Day and Battle: Los Angeles, Joe Cornish brilliantly subverts the genre by leaving it up to a South London gang of street youths to save the day. Featuring the film debut of international superstar John Boyega (Star Wars: Episode VII–The Force Awakens), Attack the Block is an irreverent and entertaining take on a standard sci-fi narrative, one that refreshes the hackneyed and conventional way in which these stories are normally conveyed. “Attack the Block is a blast of imagination, wit and sheer nerve—an alien invasion movie twice as entertaining as the ones Hollywood has churned out all summer, made at a fraction of the cost.”—Katey Rich, CinemaBlend.
Advance tickets are available at nwfilm.org: $10 general; $9 student/senior/PAM member; $7 Silver Screen Club Friend. Tickets at the door are $12 general; $11 student/senior/PAM member; $9 Silver Screen Club Friend.
