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 seasonal movie screenings.

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.

Note: Movies that are crossed off are sold out.
