This is What a Movie Screening on a Hollywood Rooftop Looks Like

August 26, 2015 by Brian Champlin

So have you heard about that new rooftop movie series coming to Los Angeles this month?

It’s called Rooftop Film Club and it starts on August 26 (that’s tonight!) with a screening of The Big Lebowksi and continues on for a total of 16 separate dates spread out over nearly four weeks, concluding on September 19.


Set atop the roof of the Montalban Theater smack dab in the middle of Hollywood, there are few locations that we could imagine more idyllic for an outdoor movie series than this.

Don’t believe me? Just check out some of the photos we snapped at last night’s special sneak preview of the event series.

(Also, thanks to our friend Felix aka @LookBookLA for letting us use some of his shots too!)

The setup when you arrive is pretty striking. Spacious, but intimate.

Lots of tasty burgers being served up by Hache LA.

Plus cocktails and other confections.

The Sunset was pretty glorious too. Those clouds tho…

I think I like Felix’s shot better.

Tons of photos ops… obviously.

Sunset Blvd. seemed like a perfect movie choice for the evening.

A classic.

Took a minute to get used to the headphones, but after that it was smooth sailing.
