The creative minds at the Rooftop Cinema have done it again. They've come up with a program of cult classics and blockbusters to impress even the most enthusiastic film buff.
The first part of the Rooftop Cinema program will run from Saturday 1st of December 2012 to Thursday 31st of January 2013, with movies starting at 9.30pm. See Johnny Depp channel Hunter S Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on the 5th of January and The Rum Diary on the 6th of January. The original Total Recall screens on the 12th of January followed by the remake on the 13th. Will Ferrell commands the screen from the 18th until the 24th of January culminating with the Christmas Eve special Elf. For a weird twist on things you can see the Rooftop Cinema on screen in the Australian romcom Any Questions For Ben on the 31st of January.
If you feel like a drink beforehand or afterwards, the Rooftop Bar opens daily at noon and is licensed until 1am. The cinema is also fully licensed and burgers and fries are available up until the start of screening at 9.30pm.
This is a popular place to be and there are limited deckchairs so we advise pre-purchasing tickets online to avoid disappointment. Tickets prices are $20 for adults and $16 for concession, a small booking fee is charged if you book online through Moshtix. The cinema can be found on top of Curtain House at 252 Swanston Street, Melbourne.
