I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Films Among the Stars
The iconic Rooftop Cinema on top of Curtin House is back for another season. Slightly revamped, the rooftop space still has the old favourites - the deck chairs, the Pimm's jugs and pints of beer and the Burger Shack too, tucked away in the corner. Blankets can be hired for $5 case the evening gets a bit chilly high up above Melbourne CBD.
Opening on December 2nd with Bladerunner 2049, the cinema will be showing new films such as It, The Big Sick and Dunkirk among many others as well as some of the old favourites over the Christmas period (Love Actually and Home Alone). To see what films are screening when please check here.
So come and experience a Melbourne night at its best, sitting above the rooftops, looking at a star-studded sky, sipping a glass of something cool and enjoying your favourite movie. What could possibly be better?
The first part of the season goes from December 2nd to January 30th and the second part will go from February to end of March ( this program will be released late January). You can buy burgers and chips from the Burger Shack, but if you prefer to dine before the movie Mesa Verde on Level 6 serves a special pre-cinema menu package for Rooftop visitors.
