Pilerats' 10 Days of X-Mas #1

Pilerats' 10 Days of X-Mas #1

Check Rooftop Movies' Summer Program Highlights and win one of 10 double passes.

We're feeling a bit, um, "Christmassy" so we've taken it upon ourselves to launch the inaugural Pilerats' 10 Days Of X-Mas - a different giveaway will be up for grabs each day leading up to December 25.

Yes, we're aware it's supposed to be 12 Days of Christmas. But there's a limit to how much we can suck up to people for free stuff ;)

Rooftop Movies Perth sits atop a multi-storey carpark in Northbridge - the top level of the carpark's been given a tropical makeover replete with a screen surging high into the city sky, plastic flamingos, palm treees, astro turf, stripy beach chairs and caravans selling beers, wine, and popcorn. It's one of our favourite places to head to in Perth over summer, given not only the A+ film programming, but the ever-rotating selection of post and pre-show DJs, bands and PIZZA (you can pre-order one with your online ticket purchase and have it waiting for you when you arrive, perfection).  

They've just flicked us their December / January selections, and they're tight, including the return of the Tuesday Chooseday film night (where we can vote on what film we want to see most). We're marking the following down in our diary: firstly, the most inexplicable and most thought-provoking film to come out of 2014, Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin (pictured above), where you'll see Scarlett Johanssen in a whooollle new light (or darkness, as the case may be), and another film with a woman at its centre: Gillian Robespierre's darkly funny take on a stand-up comedian dealing with abortion, Obvious Child.

We hear nothing but great things about the tale of a jazz drummer rising to stardom, Whiplash, likewise Nightcrawler, a film about a thief-turned-freelance-cameraman that decides to take deliving the nightly news into his own hands. We missed the Chris O'Dowd (The I.T. Crowd)-starring religious psych-thriller Cavalry when it was at the cinemas, so pleased to see we've got the chance to see it on the rooftop.

The Highs & Lows squad continue with some choice cuts for Friday night programming with their HAL 6000: Highs & Lows Presents series, which sees the local leading streetwear retailer choose their favourite films, and design an original poster for each (take a look at some of last month's ones via the HAL Instagram). Coming up for HAL: 6000 is 2001: A Space OdysseyThe Goonies, Home Alone, Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, and more cinema classics to kick back and enjoy come by way of Wayne's World, Jaws, Indiana Jones, Dirty Dancing, Rocky Horror Picture Show and a heck more: find your favourite via the full program listing HERE.

Rooftop Movies is open nightly, excluding Mondays, from 6pm. Pre-purchasing tickets is the go - these nights fill up quicksticks! Head to Rooftop Movies' website and lock your deck-chairs down.

WIN! Thanks to Rooftop Movies, we have 10 in-season doubles up for grabs! To enter, email info@pilerats.com with the subject 'Rooftop Movies' and your full name. Competition closes Monday, December 15.
