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 $15 to park in the garage next to the venue. Please note that it is cash only.

The general admission tickets are $32.40 with the service fee. They also offer a dinner & movie package for $56.05. Ticket prices are per person.
I won two tickets to see The Lost Boys at the Melrose Rooftop Cinema through an app called Surkus. Unfortunately, for the time being, Surkus has closed due to COVID. I always recommend following Melrose Rooftop Cinema on social media because they have their own giveaways from time to time.
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 water. There’s no need to bring water though because they offer complimentary water. They don’t search your bag so bringing my own snacks wasn’t a problem. 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 were 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.
