Cinema & Drive-In
Visitors to the Rooftop Cinema in Melbourne will quickly realise that watching a film on a spacious rooftop, with panoramic views of the cityscape and a setting sun in the background, is quite simply an unforgettable experience. Swapping cinema seats for deckchairs, attention is totally aimed at providing a relaxed and enjoyable experience, forgetting all the tensions associated with impersonal and conventional indoor cinema complexes.
Don’t worry though; this unique venue hasn’t completely done away with typical cinema customs. Customers can still grab a burger, fries and sodas, and vegetarians won’t be disappointed either.
The films exhibited here are always an interesting mix of new releases, popular classics and also tributes – a weekend or more showcasing films from a legendary actor or actress, director or writer.
Useful links include their program page, with a downloadable PDF showing what’s coming up, and their Twitter page, very handy for their bad weather warnings (meaning the cinema will be closed).
Daily, 12pm – 1am.
