Win Tickets to Top Down: Rooftop Cinema!

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Wed, Aug 28, 2013 at 10:29 AM


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!

The climax of "Never Gonna Dance" took 47 takes in a single day and required many demanding spins of Ginger Rogers; her feet bled.

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!
