RSVP: Open Roof Festival from June 21 – August 23, 2012

Do you like music, film, and ‘dam good beer? Of course, or else we can’t be friends and maybe you should leave because this just got awkward. Okay, is everyone with me?

For the third summer, Open Roof Festival is back with live concerts, an outdoor movie screening, and refreshing bevvies at Amsterdam Brewery.

Every Thursday from June 21 to August 23, 2012 the Open Roof Festival will take over the Amsterdam Brewery parking lot. Doors open at 7:30 pm, followed by a live indie band and a great outdoor film. Everything shuts down around 10:30 pm.

    This sounds like a great idea, with a terrific lineup of films, but be forewarned: it’s an event run by amateurs who don’t seem to know much about audio-visual presentation. If you hope to actually see and hear the movie, you might want to go to a real theatre.

      Eeek – I guess that’s what you should expect when the event is mostly volunteer run. I’ll have to check it out this summer but most of my friends have gone and loved it?
