Outdoor Summer Film Series in Yonkers
Generation Yonkers is thrilled to support an exciting, new summer entertainment option that solidifies Yonkers’ spot as “The Hippest Town in the Lower Hudson Valley” by combining three of our favorite things to savor in summer—film, food and the great outdoors.
In August, Yonkers welcomes Rooftop Films Summer Series at Ridge Hill where residents can enjoy the best of the last days of summer with special screenings of top independent films at Ridge Hill’s outdoor theater overlooking Sprain Ridge Park. Rooftop Films, based on Brooklyn, NY, is a film company dedicated to bringing sophisticated, urban and suburban crowds together for unique and memorable events that inspire an appreciation of independent films.
Come out at 7pm to enjoy a full evening of festivities, including music, entertainment and special food and brew tastings from top Ridge Hill restaurants and Yonkers Brewing Company. Then settle in and enjoy two acclaimed movies on the big screen.
On Wednesday, August 19th, Rooftop Films will present a screening of the 2015 Oscar winner for Best Picture, Birdman, starring Michael Keaton and written and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu.
On Thursday, August 27th, come out to enjoy the critically-acclaimed Whiplash, starring Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller in a film written and directed by Damien Chazelle.
