Chicagoans will soon be able to watch movies outdoors in the middle of the city’s skyline.
The new Rooftop Cinema Club has opened a location in Windy City, showcasing classic movies in an outdoor cinema experience in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood at the Emily Hotel.
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” originally filmed in Chicago and featuring a high school teenager who drops out of school with his friends to run around town, will premiere at the movie club on May 26 at 8 p.m. .
Movies will air daily to follow – sometimes twice a day – and will include films like “Pulp Fiction”, “10 Things I Hate About You”, “Love and Basketball”, “Grease: The Sing Along”, “Blues Brothers” and “Almost Famous”, among others.
Here’s a full list of movies and showtimes.
Screenings before 4:30 p.m. will be open to all ages, while screenings at 4:30 p.m. and later will be restricted to those 18 and older.
Concessions will also be available at events, including an assortment of cocktails, frozen drinks, beer, wine, popcorn, burgers, tacos and more, according to a statement. No outside food or drink is permitted on site.
“It has long been my dream to bring the Rooftop Cinema Club to Chicago,” said Rooftop Cinema Club founder Gerry Cottle. “I’m sure the people of Chicago will enjoy this cinematic experience, whether it’s a fun night out with friends and family or a date night. We’re so proud to be part of this city where so many iconic films have been made.”
