Rooftop Cinema Club is Back in L.A. For 2017 Starting This April

The Rooftop  Cinema Club outdoor movie series, which debuted in Los Angeles two years ago, has just announced the first two months of their 2017 schedule. The screening schedule opens with Blade Runner on April 5.

For those who have no yet attended, Rooftop Cinema Club screenings are held on the roof of the Ricardo Montalbán Theatre (just across from the Hollywood / Vine Metro Station). The screenings offer Angelenos a unique vantage point to take in a film, enjoy the view, and savor the experience… but with a little wrinkle.


Rather than use  an outdoor speaker system, guests relax in lawn chairs while enjoying the movie’s audio via headphones, which are provided for each attendee. Blankets are also provided (on the rare chilly L.A. night).

Doors open for each screening at 6 p.m., with snacks and drinks available for purchase, and (on most nights) a beautiful sunset to take in all before the movies start around 8 to 8:15 p.m.

Regular tickets are priced at $19 per person, and special ‘Love Seats’ (basically you buy two seats at once) are being offered for $29.

The complete schedule (as released so far) is listed below. You can purchase tickets via the official website.
