Rooftop Cinema Club Reveals Lineup for Focus Features Anniversary Screenings
Rooftop Cinema Club is putting a focus on Focus Features' 15th anniversary.
The open-air film experience — with locations in London, Los Angeles and New York — is partnering with the indie film standout on a screening series that will see a number of top Focus releases on the Cinema Club marquee at four locations, two each in L.A. and in New York City. The partnership was first announced at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
The two Los Angeles locations are the historic Montalban Theater in Hollywood and a new destination in downtown Los Angeles known as LEVEL. The two New York locations are YOTEL New York in Manhattan and OfficeOps in Brooklyn. The Focus 15 initiative, which also includes a London retrospective in July, will continue throughout the year.
Scheduled to screen at the Montalbaan are Brick, Brokeback Mountain, The Theory of Everything, Hanna, Eastern Promises, Pride and Prejudice and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Set for Rooftop Cinema Club's LEVEL outing are Sin Nombre, The Constant Gardener, The Pianist, Beginners, Far From Heaven, In Bruges, Atonement and Dallas Buyers Club.
In the lineup at YOTEL are Brokeback Mountain, Burn After Reading, Atonement, Moonrise Kingdom, The Theory of Everything, The Constant Gardener, The Pianist and Pride and Prejudice. Meanwhile, OfficeOps will show Milk, The Place Beyond the Pines, Lost in Translation, The Kids Are All Right, Shaun of the Dead, Beginners and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
Ticket packages and prices for the events — featuring state-of-the-art equipment, wireless headphones, lounge chairs, food and signature drinks (all for 18+ audiences) — vary depending on location. Schedules for each Rooftop Cinema Club location can be found here, or tickets can be purchased through Rooftop Cinema Club's exclusive ticket partner, Time Out.
