Rooftop Cinema Club extends outdoor movie screenings through fall – NBC Chicago


Outdoor movies in front of the Chicago skyline will continue through the fall at the Rooftop Cinema Club.

Since opening a Windy City location in the spring, the Rooftop Cinema Club presents classic films in an outdoor cinema experience in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood at the Emily Hotel, and will continue through October.

In June and August, the rooftop will screen “Harry Potter” films every Sunday, then begin showing films featuring cinematic favorite Leos and Virgos in a new zodiac theme.

Movies will air daily to follow – sometimes twice a day – and will include films like “Dirty Dancing”, “Get Out”, “Parent Trap”, “Jaws”, “Do the Right Thing”, “Scream”, “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The Breakfast Club”, among others.

Here’s a full list of movies and showtimes.

Screenings before 4:30 p.m. will be open to all ages, while screenings at 4:30 p.m. and later will be restricted to those 18 and older. Tickets are available for purchase online, priced at $19.75 to $27.75

Concessions will also be available at events, including an assortment of cocktails, frozen drinks, beer, wine, popcorn, burgers, tacos and more, according to a statement. No outside food or drink is permitted on site.

“It has long been my dream to bring the Rooftop Cinema Club to Chicago,” said Rooftop Cinema Club founder Gerry Cottle. “I’m sure the people of Chicago will enjoy this cinematic experience, whether it’s a fun night out with friends and family or a date night. We’re so proud to be part of this city where so many iconic films have been made.”
