Rooftop Film Club at Yotel is simply spectacular. Seeing Top Gun on a balmy New York night with the backdrop of Times Square was unforgettable. I was visiting from London, where we also have Rooftop Film Club on top of a Car Park in Peckham. Again great views and great films. I think the New York version wins over London and I am the last person on the planet ever to vote away from my own town. I just found this to be the highlight of our trip.

@The Man on the Street Pity that they were all sold out as of this publication date (which begs the questions - "Why did TO bother to put them on the list anyway?" and "For events like this, shouldnt it be a much shorter lead time to book tickets?"

Event like this always interest me. Most of the movies are good and most of the people looks happy.
