Films go down better with cocktails—you know this to be true. And the whole experience is even sweeter when you can take in a city view sunset. Rooftop Cinema Club has perfected the night out at the movies, and we’re delighted to exclusively announce its third annual edition of summer movie screenings.

At either location, expect popcorn, wireless headphones (a Rooftop Cinema Club speciality) and comfy seating. They do have a special offer: A general-admission ticket that includes a bottomless box of popcorn for just $3 extra. And the films they’ve selected are top-notch, from recent Oscar winners to the classics.

Such an awesome week night activity with a friend or date. They play great movies - get your ticket in advance. Only thing that sucks is that they don't refund your ticket if it rains, but only if it's lightening/thundering. Brooklyn spot is right near Robertas! Pick up pizza or get it delivered. Also BYOB is fun. And unlimited popcorn if you are in a love seat!

Last month I spontaneously went to my first rooftop movie and saw Deadpool. I didn't do much research or look into what I was going to experience so I had no set expectation. The location was in East Williamsburg, right off of the Morgan stop. Very easy to navigate and find. At this location we were greeted by event staff downstairs who directed us to the rooftop. There, we went to a little stand where we picked up the headsets. I clearly didn't do my research and didn't know we had to wear headsets to actually hear the movie. It was fine once I overcame the fact that I was wearing a reusable headset. 

The ambiance was great. The red and white striped lounge chairs were surprisingly comfortable. And it's BYOB and snacks.  

All in all I would say this is a great experience and I would definitely attend another. The Brooklyn location was great with an amazing view of Manhattan.

I would not go to YOTEL for the Cinema - had a very bad experience. I was sitting waiting for the movie to begin and a cigarette hit me from a nearby window and burned a hole through my dress. The hotel management assured me they would do something to take care of it/submit an insurance claim and they have done nothing. I have called a few times to follow-up and no one returns my calls.
