Rooftop Cinema Club
Time Out says
The masters of alfresco rooftop movie viewing have returned for another season of screenings in Hollywood and Downtown L.A. Known for excellent film choices and a steady supply of snacks and booze, Rooftop Cinema Club is your snazzy, comfortable and less stressful alternative to other outdoor movie screenings. You don’t even need to bring your own blanket or camping chair—Rooftop Cinema Club provides you with your very own comfy lawn chair, as well as blankets on request for the ultimate cozy experience. And instead of listening to the movie over loudspeakers, you’ll get a set of wireless headphones so you never have to miss a word.
This year’s first slate of screenings includes a Women’s History Month celebration in March, a Love & Basketball screening on May 1 that includes a donation to Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Sports Foundation, a prom-themed night on May 2 (for screenings of Napoleon Dynamite and Juno), monthly hip-hop nights on Saturdays and LEVEL, a vote-for-your-favorite Tarantino film screening on March 27 and a couple of J-Lo–themed nights.

This is a cute alternative to a regular movie night. Located on the rooftop of the building, you're seated in comfy beach chairs and are given headphones to listen (and adjust the volume). There's a bar, popcorn/candy stand and a burger (including veggie burger) stand as well.
I went to the Rooftop Cinema Screening at its Downtown LA location, LEVEL. The rooftop itself was a fourth floor landing area, not at the very top of the building as one might assume. They also only had one food vendor (a lobster roll place) and a small concessions area, which was a little disappointing for someone expecting more options. However, the quality of the film, headphones and service was fantastic! The blankets are a great addition, especially as wind picked up later during the night. The seats were comfy and it was overall a great experience!
Love this place. It's a great place to come with friend, on a date, or even solo. The headphones solve the problem of not being able to hear, while the seats make it so you can leave the movie without a numb backside. They show a mix of old and new films that you can enjoy from a view of Hollywood you probably rarely see. A fun activity for tourists and residents alike!
Rooftop Film Club takes advantage of LA's beautiful weather by screening outdoor movies from spring to fall. There are some serious perks to this event - your own set of headphones, comfy chairs, blankets, food and drink. It's like having a screening room in your own house...but you're on a Hollywood rooftop. I saw Sunset Boulevard here and it was a blast.
I went to see Blade Runner with my friend and fellow blogger, and had a wonderful time! Not only was the movie great (believe it or not, it was my first time seeing it!), but the atmosphere was something very rare and unique compared to the usual movie night here in LA. Love that they give you blankets if you're chilly, and that they sell food and drinks, as well as candy and popcorn right on the rooftop! Check out my burger and strawberry lemonade, as well as our popcorn in the photo I snapped during the previews! A couple things to keep in mind: The bathrooms are located a few flights of stairs down, and there is no other option but to climb a bunch of stairs to even reach the rooftop. There are some cool murals along the way, so check them out and maybe even Snapchat them while you get your workout in before eating, drinking and sitting in lounge chairs for a couple hours while enjoying the movie. Definitely also bring a jacket, since you can't take those fuzzy blankets with you on your way out. In addition to the bathrooms being far away, one other thing I didn't love is that of course you do need headphones (it's outdoors so there's a lot of ambient noise, of course)... but it also restricts you from whispering (very quietly!) to your friend or date if you're like me and love commenting (very briefly, I swear!) during movies. Still, I definitely recommend this for a night out with friends, or for a fun, unique date night!
Hands down the best outdoor cinema in Los Angeles! This is the perfect place to go on a date or with friends!! Be sure to get there early for dinner and a glass of wine.
This is such a fun place to see a movie. It's right in the middle of Hollywood so you have some cool views of LA and it's just a cool atmosphere. The seats are really comfortable too and they have a great lineup of films!
