Rooftop Cinema Club Returns With Music-Filled Movie Lineup


Cinephiles rejoice! After a brief hiatus, the Rooftop Cinema Club has released tickets for the month of April, and it’s filled with opportunities to hand jive with the Thunderbirds, sing along with Freddie Mercury or strike a pose with Derek Zoolander.

The UK-based Rooftop Cinema Club, with franchises in Los Angeles, New York, Houston and more, debuted last year with an outdoor movie screen on a rooftop of downtown San Diego’s Manchester Grand Hyatt.

Their goal: to be a social movie-going experience. 

Each season, the Rooftop Cinema Club selects a handful of cult films for their big screen under the stars — from 80s treasures like “Dirty Dancing” to new blockbusters like “Bohemian Rhapsody.” 

All screenings for the month of April start at 8 p.m. but the rooftop opens at 6:30 p.m. so guests can arrive early for some cocktails and food while they take in the sweeping views of San Diego at sunset. 

Once it’s time for the film to begin, movie-goers will take a seat on a reclining deckchair and be given a pair of wireless headphones to best be able to soak up every memorable moment playing on screen. 

This month, The Rooftop Cinema Club is bringing back some of last year’s popular screenings as well as adding some new hit films to the list, including Oscar-award winning “A Star is Born.” 

Here’s the full lineup for April: 

April 3: “Grease” Sing-a-Long
April 4: “Bohemian Rhapsody” Sing-a-Long
April 5: “A Star is Born”
April 6: “The Greatest Showman”
April 9: “10 Things I Hate About You”
April 10: “Dazed and Confused”
April 11: “Top Gun”
April 12: “Dirty Dancing”
April 13: “Love Jones” 
April 16: “Mean Girls”
April 17: “Pulp Fiction”
April 18: “Selena”
April 19: “Pretty in Pink”
April 20: “The Big Lebowski”
April 23: “Pretty Woman”

April 25: “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy”
April 26: “Bohemian Rhapsody” Sing-a-Long
April 27: “A Star is Born”

Seats come in individual or “love seat” styles. A lounge seat ticket starts at $17 and a love seat, meant for two people, costs $24 per person and comes with a bottomless bucket of fresh popcorn to share.

Student discounts are also available but movie-goers must be 18 years or older to attend. 

Guests who purchase food or drink at Rooftop Cinema Club get four hours of free parking in the Grand Hyatt’s parking garage.
