When it comes to watching movies outdoors, Rooftop Cinema Club has it down to a science (if that science were awesomeness and you got an A+). There's a cocktail bar. There's popcorn, even a "bottomless" ticketing option. There are state-of-the-art wireless headphones. And you're on a roof and it's summertime. What's not to understand here?

Here's what's changed: All screenings this season will unspool at Skylawn Rooftop Bar at Embassy Suites (60 W 37th St), which opens at 5pm daily, so you can get your drink on early. And the programming continues to evolve in impressive ways. Not only can you sing along to a certain Oscar-winning song, you can steep yourself in weekly picks devoted to strong onscreen women, black cinema and LGBT/Pride films. Showtime is 8:30pm.

Time Out is proud to announce RCC's first month of titles, with purchasing links below.
