Join Refinery29 For These Amazing July Rooftop Screenings

If you're wondering how to stay cool during those sweltering summer evenings in New York City, look no further. Refinery29 is partnering with Rooftop Cinema Club to showcase empowering female-driven films throughout July. At each event, Rooftop Cinema Club, which hosts experiential screenings in cities from London to L.A., will pair major blockbusters with one of Refinery29's own Shatterbox Anthology films, working to spotlight the women of Hollywood and the mesmerizing stories they've told.

Ahead, find all of the event dates for the coming weeks. We hope you'll be able to join one of these gorgeous NYC showings — we've got the popcorn and champagne ready.

Just 7% of 2016's top films were directed by women. Refinery29 wants to change this by giving 12 female directors a chance to claim their power. Our message to Hollywood? You can't win without women. Watch new films every month on Refinery29.com/Shatterbox and Comcast Watchable.

Hidden Figures

First, we'll kick off the evening with a screening of Tiffany Shlain's game-changing Shatterbox Anthology documentary, 50/50, which examines history's often-overlooked (and seriously kickass) women leaders. Spoiler: did you know that the first computer programmer was a British countess who lived over 150 years ago? Nope, neither did we.

Speaking of under-acknowledged female tech geniuses, Rooftop Cinema Club will follow Shlain's film with a showing of 2017 Oscar-darling, Hidden Figures. Featuring career-defining performances from Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monáe, and Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures celebrates the tenacious women of color whose courage changed NASA forever. Grab your tickets here.

Room

On July 28th, RCC is treating us to a screening of Chloe Sevigny's directorial debut, Kitty. The story of an imaginative young girl (and the world's indifference to her stories), Shatterbox's Kitty is almost certainly the most whimsical film you'll see this summer.

And if you needed more proof of the imagination's boundless power, stick around for that evening's feature, Room. We'll bring the tissues to get you through Brie Larson's heartbreaking — and Oscar-winning — performance. Don't forget to get your tickets here.

The Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood

On July 29, we'll get the evening going with a special appearance from R29's own Lucie Fink. We're hoping her next adventure is as delicious as this one.

Next, we're heading down South for 2002's ecstatic classic, Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood (and a pair of powerhouse performances from Sandra Bullock and Maggie Smith). Get your tickets here.
