New York is one lucky city. It splits movie settings between San Francisco and Anytown, USA and now it's getting a film series courtesy of Amy Poehler. For the rest of the summer, New Yorkers get to experience some of the greatest films in cinema history all the while sitting atop a luxurious hotel roof.
Gothamist caught wind of the series for which attendees can pay $20 to see classics like The Jerk, Rushmore, and Sixteen Candles. Twenty smackers sound like too much to spend on a hand full of old movies you can get at your locally owned used video store? Hold on there sailor; that ticket also gives you popcorn, a specialty cocktail, and that great view of Manhattan.
What's more is that Poehler herself chose these movies. Perhaps her choices will you a bit of insight as to how she performs. Who knows? Maybe Poehler will attend a screening and give you a back rub. That'd be nice. The only caveat is seating; there are about twenty seats but you have a whole week to see each movie. No big deal there. You can buy tickets on the film festival's website.
