A TALE OF TWO CITIES –
ROOFTOP FILM CLUB LAUNCHES IN NYC
The UK’s number one outdoor cinema experience has set its heights on New York City, landing on the stunning roof terrace of YOTEL Hotel in Midtown, just steps away from Times Square. This summer movie-loving New Yorkers can enjoy delicious food and cold drinks above the city streets, before catching their favorite classic, cult and current movie in the glow of the iconic skyline.
With state-of-the-art equipment, high-quality wireless headphones and comfortable seats in a truly unique urban environment, these are movie screenings with altitude. YOTEL New York’s expansive terrace is the largest outdoor hotel space in the city.
Rooftop Film Club is celebrating the US launch on both sides of the pond with a stellar line-up of NYC-based movies screened under the stars. The four-day run will screen in tandem in both cities from June 7-10, featuring the sci-fi comedy (and questionable fashion) of 80s cult classic Ghostbusters, Woody Allen’s unforgettable Manhattan, the timeless style of Breakfast at Tiffany’s or an alternative look at Broadway with Oscar-winner, Birdman.
Since its inception in 2011, Rooftop Film Club has pioneered the outdoor cinema phenomenon in the UK, becoming a staple of the London culture scene. RooftopFilm Club has grown a sizable and passionate following, selling out over 250 rooftopscreenings across five London venues in 2014 alone.
Gerry Cottle Jnr, Co-founder of Rooftop Film Club, commented: “With the most iconic skylines in the world, NYC has always been an aspiration for us as a business. We’ve spent years trying to find the ideal spot for our stateside debut – as soon as we saw the terrace at YOTEL we knew we had found our new home.”
