Rooftop Cinema Club, now in its fifth season in Los Angeles, has become a staple of the local outdoor movie screening scene, and this year they’re back with a robust lineup of films and food options.

RCC first started in London’s Shoreditch back in 2011. Founder Gerry Cottle Jr. brought the series (then called Rooftop Film Club) to L.A. in 2015, and it has evolved into one of the signature outdoor events series in the city, expanding to multiple venues and increasing the number of total screenings.

Rather than use an outdoor speaker system, guests relax in lawn chairs, watching films via a state-of-the-art projector while enjoying the movie’s audio via provided headphones. The rooftop setting and lounge appeal is accompanied by (either) food trucks or venue-specific menu options.

The series has two L.A. locations for 2019: NeueHouse in Hollywood and LEVEL in Downtown Los Angeles. This year’s season kicks off on March 20 with a showing of La La Land at NeueHouse, and the schedule from there features a mixture of classics and newly released films.

If you’re looking for something interactive for this spring, both rooftop locations will host sing-a-longs screenings of Bohemian Rhapsody and Grease. Also of note, some of the screenings will feature special events, including a themed-night for Bridesmaids and a special post-screening Q&A for the 65th anniversary screening of Creature From The Black Lagoon.

Tickets for RCC start at $17 (plus booking fee) for general lounge seating. It’s $20 for the seat plus unlimited popcorn, and special ‘Rooftop Love Seats’ are $24 per person. All attendees must be 18+.

Check out the complete listings of upcoming films below (through April). If you wish to purchase tickets to any of the screenings, visit rooftopcinemaclub.com.
