Movies in a taproom
Brewery hosts Flight & Film series

 Once a month, Rockingham Brewing Co. hosts its Flight & Film series, when it shows a cult classic or indie film on a projector in the taproom, accompanied by beer flights for attendees. 

Past films have covered a variety of genres, from black-and-white classics like Some Like it Hot and It’s a Wonderful Life to horror flicks like Silence of the Lambs and Night of the Living Dead. Films are often chosen to coincide with the season or nearest holiday. Groundhog Day was shown in February, Three Amigos was shown in May for Cinco de Mayo, and Psycho was shown in October for Halloween. 
“We show obscure movies to share them with people who haven’t seen them before. Then other times we show a cult classic where everyone knows every word and laughs the whole way through,” brewery co-founder Ali Buinicky said. 
During the movie, you can get two beer flights: a flight of four for the first half, and another flight of four for the second half after the intermission. 
The flights include whatever eight beers the brewery has on tap at the time, usually four year-round beers and four that rotate seasonally. 
“It’s a different flight every time, so it doesn’t get old. People are trying new beers every month.” Buinicky said. “It kind of opens people’s horizons to try beers that they wouldn’t normally order on their own.” 
If you don’t want to get the flight, you can get two full pints of beer instead. Many times, if the brewery has a new beer, people at the Flight & Film events will get to taste it first, before it’s officially released. 
Buinicky created the series last fall as a way of sharing her love for indie film and craft beer, and giving people a place where they can appreciate both art forms in an intimate, low-key setting.  
“It’s been my favorite thing that we do at the brewery,” she said. “Everyone seems to have fun, and I’m so happy with how it’s developed.” 
Flight & Film events can accommodate 25 people and almost always sell out, Buinicky said, so if you want to go, you should purchase tickets as early as possible; they go on sale two weeks in advance.
