Other highlights include A Star is Born, Black Swan, Kill Bill and an Avengers 10-year anniversary screening.
Those looking to attend can opt for a general admission VIP seating ($30 per person) or the VIP movie package ($65 per person), which comes with a globally-inspired. Locally-sourced three-course menu from none other than E.P. restaurant.
The MRT dinner menu includes choices of fish and chips; gem lettuce caesar; fresh creste di galli pasta; slow-cooked duck leg and choux bun.
To attend Melrose Rooftop Theatre is a special experience for all guests. Each person can expect to settle into their own bean bag while watching the sun dip into the Los Angeles sky and sipping on a specialty craft cocktail. Everyone also gets personal wireless technology headsets.
While the cinema doors open at 7:30 p.m., the rooftop opens each day at 4 p.m. for any group looking to gather for some bites and drinks ahead of a movie. Screenings begin as soon as the sun sets and run from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., which also allows just enough time to experience chef Nick Russo and culinary director Monty Koludrovic’s seasonal dinner menu.
Melrose Rooftop Theatre is an easy find for newcomers. Adjacent to the L.P. Rooftop, the entrance to the theater experience is via the lobby at 603 N. La Cienega Blvd.
