City skyline, alcohol and great movies – the Rooftop Cinema is the quickest way to acquaint yourself with Melbourne’s hipster scene.
Level 6, 252 Swanston Street
3000 Melbourne, Australia
Sit sky high in Melbourne's cityscape with some al fresco film at the Rooftop Cinema. Melbourne's Rooftop Cinema is the hippest, and perhaps highest, cinema destination, resting on top of the iconic Curtain House in the hub of the city.
Part bar part cinema, this urban oasis lets you sip cocktails whilst reclining in your deckchair, immersing yourself in the city lights. The films have a cult classic persuasion, and Edward Scissorhands rests comfortably next to Footloose in the program.
Only a few levels up from Melbourne's hippest bars Cookie and The Toff in Town there is some serious cool at play at the Rooftop Cinemas and people will be looking at you as much as the screen.
