NYC Rooftop Cinema Club a will take you on a nostalgic journey back to old school movies! If you’re searching for a different experience in New York City, but you’re not sure where to start, let me help you out.
New Yorkers are known for loving rooftops of every type and the ideas are truly endless. I recently visited, for the first time, an experience I was craving to try: movie screening on a rooftop. And, I have to say, I l-o-v-e-d it!
This NYC Rooftop Cinema Club has been screening some of the best movies around New York City. The experience is certainly great and it’s definitely something you can go to multiple times!
The doors open at 6:30pm so you have time to grab your popcorn, choose your drink at their full bar, get your personal headsets and chose the perfect seat! Screening start at 7:15pm sharp (or when the sun sets) and are super fun!
You’ll find yourself in a rooftop, high up in the sky, located in between massive concrete buildings in Manhattan, sitting in those comfortable deckchairs with pillow and lots of leg space.
The film I chose to see was the 1988 classic “Beetlejuice”. And, I have to say, it got everyone laughing out loud during the music scenes.
We all know the film has zero super effects compared to today’s productions, but that’s what makes it so fun. Remembering how much we loved this back in the days, just takes us back in time.
Now wait! If you’re not really into classics, don’t worry! They also screen cult films and new releases!
More about them:
“We believe that all experiences should be memorable, which is why we are on a mission to transform nights at the movies to cinematic events like no other. You bring your friends and loved ones, and we’ll bring you city skylines, sunsets, starlit evenings, awesome drinks, delicious food, and great movies on the big screen.
Driven by our love of film, our Rooftops promise a handpicked curation of cults, classics, and new releases. We stand for social cinema because we believe it’s the future. Join our movement.”
Aside from New York, they also have screenings in cities like San Diego, Los Angeles, Houston and London. So, if you live in any of these places, or you’re passing by, be sure to check them out.
