Cinephiles and Miamians Rejoice: Miami’s first rooftop movie theater arrives this spring

by Kyandreia Jones

After success in London, Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, and New York, Rooftop Cinema Club’s founder Gerry Cottle is debuting a new venue in the Sunshine State: Rooftop Cinema Club South Beach. This Spring, the multi-sensory theater and entertainment experience will sit atop 1212 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach and offer film classics, panoramic city views, craft cocktails, savory snacks, and scrumptious meals. Rooftop Cinema Club South Beach will be Miami’s first and only open-air rooftop movie theater.  It will also serve as Rooftop Cinema Club’s ninth location, becoming a part of an exciting new culture of “social cinema”. 

Rooftop Rendering 1Rooftop Cinema Club began as a single rooftop in London’s Shoreditch in 2011. Cottle, the son of the famous Circus owner of the same name, took the skills he acquired in the entertainment industry, particularly with Cirque Du Soleil, Amnesty International, Disney, and Girls Aloud, and created the Rooftop brand. Inspired and empowered by his passion for film, Cottle’s rooftop cinemas have been a breath of fresh air in beautiful cities across the world.

Everything about the Rooftop Cinema Club experiences invites in people from all walks of life. From its photogenic venue to its multiple daily screenings, movie-goers have several opportunities to interact with and enjoy the space. For example, in addition to classic movie snacks, the rooftop venue will offer a food menu and specialty cocktails for those who need more than soft drinks to quench their thirst and more than popcorn to satisfy their appetite. To make guests all the more comfortable, they can choose between two seating options: a single lounge seat or single Adirondack chair. Both options prioritize comfort and provide ample leg room to ensure a superior movie-watching experience free of stress, worry, or discomfort. That’s not all. Rooftop Cinema Club wants to give guests the ultimate viewing experience. Guests will watch films on an exceptional LED screen that features a high-quality picture, transporting each movie-goer into the exhilarating stories before them. Guests will also wear wireless headphones that allow them to listen to the excellent audio at their desired volume. 

Guests SD EMB 21What can guests look forward to on the big screen? Movie genres will include hand-picked classics, cult films, and new releases. Guests can expect to see Rooftop fan favorites such as 10 Things I Hate About You, Dirty Dancing, Pulp Fiction, and Mean Girls on the schedule. The Rooftop Cinema Club team will also curate monthly programming (i.e. anniversary screenings, people’s choice, and sing-a-longs), occasional talent Q&As, and special events. 

Rooftop Cinema Club boasts global success because it offers more than a movie. It inspires in its guests a strong sense of nostalgia, togetherness, exhilaration to which anyone can relate. Whether a casual go-to spot for friends or the perfect change of pace for date night, the theater welcomes cinephiles, friends, family, and loved ones alike into its modern space. The Miami location will restrict all viewings to an 18-or-older audience. However, there is potential for more family-friendly content to be available later in the season.  

Concessions SD EMB 32In experiencing a comprehensive day/night full of movie-watching, dining, and unbeatable views, guests have an opportunity to engage in a new kind of fun outside of the beach, night life, and restaurants. Keep in mind that guests will also have the pleasure of enjoying the gorgeous sight of water, sunshine, and magic known only to South Floridians as they take advantage of this new addition to Miami Beach this Spring.
