We’re just on the cusp of summer and with that comes a slew of outdoor venues to enjoy your weekly dose of cinema. Rooftop Film Club, a new outdoor film series, has made its way from the UK and is now officially in full swing for you to experience. Set at Midtown’s Yotel, the location offers some pretty breathtaking views of the New York skyline and won’t leave you scrambling for a seat on the grass before showtime. “With the most iconic skylines in the world, NYC has always been an aspiration for us as a business. We’ve spent years trying to find the ideal spot for our stateside debut – as soon as we saw the terrace at YOTEL we knew we had found our new home,” says Rooftop Film Club founder Gerry Cottle, Jr.
Every week, from now until September 30th, the series will show four films, ranging from classics like Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, Casablanca, and Clueless to new favorites like the Oscar-winning Whiplash and Birdman With a rooftop bar and delicious snacks to choose from (like a taco + sangria/beer special for $25), you can forget your typical movie theater concession stand fare and imbibe while watching your favorite flicks under the stars. Doors open at 6pm, with all screenings beginning at 8:30pm. Check out the full summer program HERE and check out the previews for the films playing this week.
