Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Film - Tanya MacNaughton

A NEW bean­bag seat­ing op­tion and larger screen are two of the dif­fer­ences pa­trons will ex­pe­ri­ence at Rooftop Movies this sea­son.

The out­door venue opened last week for its fourth year at the North­bridge lo­ca­tion and pro­gram man­ager Jessica Dar­low said the changes were their way of up­ping the ante as they pro­vided a mixed bag of movies.

“We’re like the pick and mix of cin­ema,” Dar­low said.

“I like to think we oc­cupy a space be­tween Luna Palace, who do the in­cred­i­ble in­de­pen­dent re­lease films, and block­buster cin­e­mas.

“This year we have the best of what’s come out dur­ing the past six months in both main­stream and in­de­pen­dent cin­ema, and some fun clas­sics you don’t of­ten get to see on the big screen.

“I love that the venue is in the mid­dle of ev­ery­thing and you don’t have to schlep out in a car and find park­ing some­where to walk through a foot­ball field to get to it. I can leave work at 5.30pm, be there by 6pm, have a drink and watch the sun go down.”

Rooftop Movies is on the sixth floor of Roe Street carpark, North­bridge, and is open nightly, ex­clud­ing Mon­days, from 6pm.

The full sum­mer sea­son runs un­til April and the pro­gram is avail­able at www.rooftop
