Be sure to let the staff know if you're seeing a film so that they can ensure you're all done in time for the feature.

For more information visit Mesa Verde.

Seating
Take your pick from one of our amazing Ici Et La deck chairs and get comfy. Before long, you'll never want to watch a movie sitting on a couch or cinema seat again!


Blankets
Hire a one of our custom made blankets for $5 before and during films from one of the friendly staff members by the ice-cream freezer neon sign. Or from the projector during the film. The super-soft blankets made by Sunday Ganim.

Bad Weather

Rooftop Cinema reserves the right to cancel any film in the case of bad weather. A decision will be made no later than two hours before the scheduled screening.

In the event of a cancellation, we will post an update on our Facebook page, and the homepage of this website. Refunds for cancelled screenings will be issued via Moshtix.

Dress for the Occasion

This is a cinema on a roof – in Melbourne no less! – so play it safe and bring a jumper just in case. You can also hire one of our custom-made blankets if you're down to get extra cosy.

You can, but not on the synthetic-grass area during the films.

A cinema on a roof in the heart of Melbourne. Owned and operated by a sharp team of creative minds, Rooftop Cinema is committed to showcasing arthouse, classic and recent release films in a completely unique urban environment. Rooftop Cinema is built to be an urban idyll, a complete contrast to the noise, bustle and crowds of the city. Up on the roof you have the sky above you, the grass beneath you, and a film and the Melbourne skyline in front of you.

A bar on a roof in the heart of Melbourne. Open every day from 11am to 1am in summer and from midday during winter.

The Good Copy is a writing studio, a shop, a school and a publisher. These disparate-sounding endeavours all revolve around writing. The shop sells writing equipment and hosts writing events, the school teaches punctuation and grammar, the writing studio does writing work, the publishing arm publishes written things. The Good Copy hopes that all of this will result in writers getting more work, writers meeting other writers, writers learning to be better writers, writers never running out of four-colour pens, and writers having a nice warm spot to sit with their computers so they stop getting kicked out of cafes.
