Thirteen Sundays (and one Wednesday!), summer through fall, featuring well-loved classics, beneath the stars and above the streets of Iowa City. You never know what we’ll add to each screening to butter up your Rooftop experience. Join us for these very fun, special shows, and buy tickets early as seating is limited, and Rooftop shows do sell out! Doors open with seating and pre-show fun at 8pm. Screening at dusk. In the case of inclement weather, the screening will occur indoors.


An annual tradition, we close the Rooftop Series with FARGO. Bottomless hot chocolate and coffee with your ticket? You betcha!

"One of the best films I've ever seen. Films like FARGO are why I love the movies." -Roger Ebert

Join us for the last Rooftop Series show of the season, a special screening of the Coen Bros. darkly comic-crime classic. Frances McDormand stars as a pregnant police chief investigating a series of homicides across the frozen tundra. Against a sprawling Minnesota landscape, a car salesman (William H. Macy) hires two criminals (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife. But when the scheme goes sour, wood chippers get involved, and the haphazard kidnapping plot turns deadly serious. Winner of two Academy Awards.

Come huddle with us to close down the Rooftop for 2018. It'll be a nice time, yah, you betcha!
