Rooftop Films Presents: Ping Pong Summer
May 30, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm| $13 online and at the door
Presented in Partnership with Time Out New York: Special Sneak Preview with live 80s DJ & Ping Pong Tournament!
NY Premiere. The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy 13-year-old white kid who’s obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family’s annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. PING PONG SUMMER (Michael Tully | 92 min.) is about that time in your life when you’re treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you’re as funky fresh as it gets.

Event includes pre-screening live music and an after party. Tickets are $13 online and at the door. Doors open at 8pm, live music begins at 8:30pm, and the film screening starts at 9pm.
Venue information: The Old American Can Factory is an historic 130,000 square foot, six-building manufacturing and arts complex at the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, at the edge of Park Slope. It is perhaps our most peaceful and spacious rooftop venue. Built between 1865 and 1901, with a medievalesque courtyard and narrow alleyways, the complex has a quiet, vibrant artistic energy heightened throughout the year by uncommon performances, exhibitions and events presented in and around the buildings. Curated tenants include a wide range of individual visual & performing artists and companies as well as local manufacturing businesses. The Old American Can Factory was developed and is operated by XO Projects Inc., and it is also the year-round home base for the Rooftop Films offices. For access by train, take the F/G to Carroll St.
