The most popular rooftop movie series in Los Angeles has announced the first leg of its 2018 schedule, which starts on April 4. As with last year, Rooftop Cinema Club’s 2018 edition features two venues for guests to choose from: The rooftop at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Hollywood and a rooftop setting at LEVEL, DTLA, a luxury apartment building in Downtown L.A.. The distinguishing features of a typical RCC include early access to enjoy sunset views (which at the Montalban, at least, are quite lovely) plus a unique sound system.  Rather than relying on outdoor speakers, guests watch films in lawn chairs while enjoying the movie’s audio via noise-cancelling headphones, which are provided for each attendee. Blankets are also handed out upon request if the weather gets a bit chilly.

A quick glance at this year’s schedule shows a densely packed lineup of acclaimed recent releases (I, TonyaCall Me By Your Name, Get Out) mixed with classics (Casablanca, Blade Runner, The Godfather). There are numerous double-bills at The Montalban, including same-night screenings of The Breakfast Club with Fast Times at Ridgemont High as well as Pan’s Labryinth with The Shape of Water. However, I should note that a quick look at the ticketing system on RCC’s website makes it unclear whether a purchased ticket for an early screening (say Fast Times at 7:45 p.m.) also gets you access to the screening that follows (Breakfast Club at 10:30 p.m.) or if you would have to purchase two tickets to see both. I strongly recommend inquiring on this point before purchasing for a double-bill evening.

That said, individual tickets are $19 per screening, and you can also buy a ‘Love Seat’ for $28, which includes a double deckchair for two and bottomless popcorn. Cocktails, candy and street food are available for purchase on site. You can take a look at the full schedule of dates, times and films (released so far) below.

Also, if outdoor movies are your jam, you may want to take a look at the recently released schedule for Street Food Cinema 2018.
