You will spend 95 bucks on your Netflix Streaming account this year. That’s a good deal. Here’s a better one: become a member of Rooftop Films in 2013 for $65 and get access to every single show all summer long.”

Do you want to sit at home alone streaming low-res movies on your laptop, or do you want to meet up with hundreds of cool people and get wrapped up in a film glowing on a giant inflatable screen? Do you want to be hushed up in some boring black box, or do you want to hang out while the city unfurls beneath you, the wide-open sky above? Suffer through canned pre-show commercials, or cheer the hippest bands in NYC? Kicked out for the next seating, or chilling out with the filmmakers at an after-party with free drinks?
