One of my favorite companies in the film industry, Rooftop Films, is doing some more cool things this weekend in New York City.
They’ve teamed up with BBC America for a solar-powered screening of Planet Earth and the world premiere of The Making of Planet Earth. That’s right, it’s solar-powered to celebrate Earth Day this Saturday, April 21st.
The event is going to be held on 2420 FDR Drive (which is on 23rd Street at the East River. To add a cherry on top, it’s FREE. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the night begins with Planet Earth at 7:45 p.m.
Get there early because the first 250 people that make it to the show will also get a free ticket to a Rooftop Films evening this summer, and that includes opening night. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
The Making of Planet Earth is just what it sounds like. The film is a two-hour showcase taking you behind the scenes, covering the happenings of the filmmakers who traveled the globe to make Planet Earth. It’s runs for approximately 88 minutes.
If I were you, I would check it out. Rooftop Film always knows how to put on a good night at an affordable price and this one is free.
