Melrose Rooftop Cinema An Outdoor Movie Venue

Los Angeles has added another outdoor movie screening venue. The Melrose Rooftop Cinema is located in the same spot as the E.P & L.P restaurant off of Melrose in West Hollywood. Your ticket includes a bean bag type chair that comes with a blanket and a headset so that you can hear the movie well. I was able to find free street parking on La Cienega Blvd. If you are unable to find street parking it costs $12 to park in the garage next to the venue. Please note that it is cash only.

The ticket for just the movie will come to around $27.50. If you would like to include a three-course meal from E.P & L.P it will cost $65. Those who purchase the dinner & a movie package will get a reserved seat.

I won two tickets to see The Lost Boys at the Melrose Rooftop Cinema through an app called Surkus. My friend Casey was very excited since this is her favorite movie.

Tinder is a sponsor of the rooftop cinema so they have a fun little photo wall that you can get your picture taken with.

Would I recommend this venue? Yes, but only for a movie that you really love since it is pricey. I stopped by the grocery store before I went so that I could have some snacks and a water. There’s no need to bring a water though because they offer complimentary water. They don’t search your bag so bringing my own snacks wasn’t a problem. But I was smart enough to wait until it got dark to pull out my own snacks since their website said they didn’t allow outside food & beverages.

Even if you don’t buy the dinner & movie tickets you can still purchase snacks, food & drinks at the bar. My friend got a chicken sandwich and fries which was very tasty.

The viewing experience was very comfortable and I had a really fun time. If you enjoy outdoor movie screenings this venue is definitely worth checking out at least once.
