Tomorrow night—Thurs Aug 29—marks the final installment in this summer's Top Down: Rooftop Cinema series, and the NW Film Center is going out with the 1936 Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers joint Swing Time. Check this shit out!

Thanks, IMDB Trivia! Gross! Anyway! If you want to go for free, cool, because I have a pair of tickets to give away. All you've got to do to enter to win them is email me no later than 2 pm today (Wed Aug 28) and make sure the subject line of your email reads "GINGER ROGERS' BLEEDING FEET." I'll pick a winner at around 2 and email 'em back. Easy!
