If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind summer movie-watching experience, then this is definitely the place for you.

Do You Enjoy Watching Movies Outside In The Summertime?

The Ultimate Outdoor Theater Is Opening In Illinois

The Rooftop Cinema Club is opening later this month on the top of the Emily Hotel in Chicago. Think about this... watching one of your favorite movies on the roof of a hotel in the Windy City with the skyline in the background. That sounds amazing.

What's The Rooftop Cinema?

According to rooftopcinemaclub.com,

We believe that all experiences should be memorable, which is why we are on a mission to transform nights at the movies to cinematic events like no other.


You bring your friends and loved ones, and we'll bring you city skylines, sunsets, starlit evenings, awesome drinks, delicious food, and great movies on the big screen.

Driven by our love of film, our Rooftops promise a handpicked curation of cults, classics, and new releases.
