Time Out says

Classic Cinemas in Elsternwick have put an outdoor cinema on their roof for screenings throughout summer

Classic Cinemas holds the claim to fame as is the longest continuously operating cinema in Victoria. It boasts ten indoor screens as well as the Classic Rooftop, with nightly screenings all through summer and until Easter.

The rooftop cinema has comfortable director's chair seating on staggered levels, while sound is delivered through headsets. Melbourne loves a rooftop bar, and the Classic Rooftop naturally has one too. You can enjoy the bar whether or not you're seeing a film. 

While you'll be able to enjoy drinks from the rooftop bar from October 22, 2021, you'll have to wait until November for a screening (the rooftop cinema is undergoing repairs). The outdoor film season will officially start November 11 with a 12.07am (that's 0007 in 24 hour time – geddit?) of Daniel Craig's final James Bond film, No Time to Die

Seats are properly socially distanced, and there are enhanced cleaning protocols in place. The season features cult classics, old favourites and plenty of new-release films. 

Tickets are on sale now.
