Chicagoans will soon be able to watch outdoor movies in the middle of the city’s skyline.
The new Rooftop Cinema Club has opened a location in the Windy City, showing classic films in an open-air cinema experience in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood at The Emily Hotel.
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” originally filmed in Chicago and starring a high school teen who drops out of school with his friends to run around town, will be the first movie club premiere on May 26 at 8 p.m.
The movies will be shown every day below, sometimes twice a day, and include movies like “Pulp Fiction”, “10 Things I Hate About You”, “Love and Basketball”, “Grease: The Sing Along”, ” Blues Brothers” and “Almost Famous”, among others.
Here is a full list of movies and showtimes.
Performances before 4:30 pm will be open to all ages, while performances after 4:30 pm will be for ages 18+ only.
Concessions will also be available at the events, including a variety of cocktails, frozen drinks, beer, wine, popcorn, burgers, tacos and more, according to a release. Outside eating and drinking is not allowed on the premises.
“I have long dreamed of bringing the Rooftop Cinema Club to Chicago,” said Rooftop Cinema Club founder Gerry Cottle. “I’m sure Chicagoans will enjoy this cinematic experience, whether it’s for a fun night out with friends and family or date night. We are very proud to be a part of this city where so many iconic films have been made.”
