After an impressive start to the summer season, Rooftop Cinema has just released the second half of its program, and it’s a feast for film lovers of all feathers.
Program highlights include a number of Oscar-season new releases such as The Wolf of Wall Street, star-studded drama August: Osange County, petrol-fuelled spectacle Rush and low-fi folk exploration Inside Llewyn Davis. Undisputed classics Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, The Never Ending Story, The Big Lebowski, Labyrinth and Breakfast at Tiffany’s also make the cut.
Hollywood’s girl-of-the-minute Jennifer Lawrence is honoured with her very own appreciation week, featuring her critically acclaimed work with David O’Russell – Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle – screening alongside dystopian teen battle-royale series The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Several special guests have also been invited to host a series of screenings, including Speakeasy Cinema with lesser-known gems such as Computer Chess and Spike Jonze’s new digital romance Her. Cult Melbourne-based zine Filmme Fatales will present The To Do List starring Aubrey Plaza, while design blog The Design Files presents culinary comedy Julie & Julia. Open Season's Deja-View Cinema is taking us back a couple of decades with White Men Can’t Jump and cyberpunk anime classic Akira, plus offering treats from the John Candy Bar.
