The Rooftop Bar is open daily from midday and we’re licensed until 1.00am, so please hang around with us before and after each screening. The Rooftop Cinema Box Office is open 5.00–9.30pm Tue–Thu and 7.00–9.30pm Sat–Sun.
Seating starts from 9.00pm and we kick off the films at 9.30pm.
Food & Drink
Rooftop Cinema is fully licensed and we serve delicious fresh food from the All Day Burger shack on the roof right up to the start of each screening. Or book a table at Mesa Verde, one floor down on Level 6 of Curtin House. Taking its name from the bank that’s raided in the Sergio Leone film Duck, You Sucker!, Mesa Verde is home to Melbourne’s (hey, maybe the world’s) largest range of tequila, and serves dinner gourmet-cantina style – from tacos, chicharrones, guisado and pepitas to bourbon glazed pork ribs and huevos rancheros.
There are 160 amazing Ici Et La deck chairs for you to choose from. They are like lollies for your eyes.
You can, but not on the synthetic-grass area or during the films.
Rooftop Cinema reserves the right to cancel any film in the case of bad weather.If the night is to be cancelled ahead of the screening, the homepage of this website will show a Twitter notification (this will be done by 6.30pm on the night of the screening). Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for updates.
