Owned and operated by a sharp team of creative minds, Rooftop Cinema showcases classic films, nostalgic favourites and recent releases in a completely unique environment – up on a rooftop in the heart of Melbourne.

Our space is built to be an urban idyll, a complete contrast to the noise, bustle and crowds of the city. Up here on the roof, you’ve got the sky above you, the (fake) grass beneath you, the Melbourne skyline around you – and a film on the screen in front of you. Did we mention there’s a bar? Head up and join us soon

We respectfully acknowledge the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the land on which we operate, and we pay respect to their Elders, past and present.

A bar on a roof in the heart of Melbourne. Open every day from 11am during summer and from midday during winter – as well as during every screening. Visit rooftopbar.co for more info.

One floor below us, on level 6, our mates at Mesa Verde serve up tacos and cocktails and tequila and good times. They also boast one of Australia’s most extensive collections of agave. No matter which night of the week you’re up here, we strongly recommend booking yourself a table, so head on over to mesaverde.net.au nowIf you want to make a super-special night for yourself and up to 30 of your friends, you can book a sit-down meal or cocktail party among the herbs and succulents in Mesa Verde’s private rooftop garden.

Bad weather

We reserve the right to cancel any film because of bad weather. We’ll make a decision about a weather-related cancellation no later than two hours before a scheduled screening.

If we do cancel a screening, we’ll post an update on our Facebook and Twitter. We’ll also send an email to all ticketholders and refund the price of their tickets.

If we don’t post or email, that means everything is going ahead as normal, and we’ll look forward to seeing you up here.

What to wear up here

To state the obvious, we are a cinema on a roof – in Melbourne, no less. So play it safe and bring a jacket or jumper. If you’re down to get extra cosy, you can hire one of our blankets, made specially for us by Sunday Ganim, for $5 from our projector booth up back.

Wheelchair access

We regret that Rooftop Cinema is not wheelchair accessible. Curtin House has a lift that travels up to level 6, but to get up to the rooftop, there is a flight of stairs.

Children and under-18s

People under the age of 18 can attend Rooftop Cinema screenings only when accompanied by, and at the discretion of, a parent or legal guardian.

Please be aware that even though a film’s rating deems it suitable for children to watch, we strongly advise that our venue is not designed for people under the age of 18, and you may decide it’s inappropriate.

We are a fully licensed venue, and during the day (and in our off-season) we operate as Rooftop Bar, where patrons must be 18 years old to enter. Rooftop Bar continues to serve drinks to cinema patrons before, during and after all of our screenings. We’re also proud to work with a sponsor who promotes safe sex, as well as other sponsors that include automobile and alcohol brands. You’ll find these brands’ logos and marketing material around the venue and in our communications.

Group bookings

We can absolutely accommodate big groups. To book tickets for 10 or more people to any film screening during our season, call the Rooftop Cinema box office on (03) 9654 5394 between 5pm and 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

All tickets in the group booking are $22 (inc. GST) and will be available to pick up at the box office from 5pm on the night of your chosen screening. We’ll ask for photo ID when you collect the tickets.

Corporate bookings

Looking to book in a corporate group of between 10 and 30 people? No problem. Ticket prices for corporate groups are $30 (inc. GST) per person. And the benefits? We don’t charge booking fees and we will reserve your seats – the best in the house, guaranteed.

Click ‘How to Redeem’ on the left for guidance on redeeming our gift vouchers, and check out our FAQ.

Click ‘How to Redeem’ on the left for guidance on redeeming everything that’s included in our gift packs, and check out our FAQ.

  1. To redeem your voucher, open the email that has your unique voucher code.
  2. Select your preferred screening from our online program, click ‘Buy tickets’, add the number of tickets you’d like to book and click ‘Add to cart’.
  3. Go to checkout.
  4. In the order summary on the right, enter your unique voucher code in the section marked ‘Gift card or discount code’ and click ‘Apply’. (If you’re on mobile, you’ll need to tap ‘Show order summary’ up the top to reveal the discount-code section.)
  5. Enter your contact information on the left and click ‘Continue’.
  6. When you reach the payment step, you’ll have one of two options, depending on your gift voucher’s balance:

    If the balance of your gift voucher is greater than or equal to your order total, you can simply click ‘Complete order’ – no payment is required.

    If the balance of your gift voucher is less than your order total, you’ll be prompted to choose a second payment method for the remaining balance.

  7. Your tickets will be emailed to you as PDFs. You’re all set! We’ll see you at the box office.

    If you don’t use up the balance of your gift voucher in one order, you can spend the remaining balance on Rooftop Cinema tickets in the future, using the same code, until it’s all gone. Our gift vouchers never expire.

    Important! Rooftop Cinema seating is unreserved and subject to availability. An unredeemed gift voucher does not guarantee you a seat at sold-out screenings; you must redeem it to secure tickets.

    I’ve got a voucher. Do I need to book a ticket?

    Yes! A gift voucher is not a ticket. You must use your unique voucher code to book a ticket (or tickets) to the film you’d like to see. You can’t bring a gift voucher to the box office in lieu of tickets. Check out ‘How to Redeem’ for guidance on redeeming vouchers.

    Okay, I’ve got my voucher. How do I book tickets to a film?

    The journey is slightly different depending on whether you’ve got an email-based gift voucher or an ‘admit two’ voucher from a gift pack. Click ‘How to Redeem’ and scroll to the relevant section for step-by-step guidance on redeeming your type of voucher.

    The unique voucher code on my voucher isn’t working. What should I do?

    Don’t worry. Simply call our box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

    I didn’t receive my gift-voucher email. Did it disappear into the void?

    Hmm. It’s true that when you buy a gift voucher, you should automatically receive an email that contains a unique voucher code. Please check your spam or promotions folders – the email may have been redirected there. If you still can’t find it, please call the box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

    I didn’t receive my gift pack in the mail.

    Please allow up to 10 business days for your gift pack to arrive.

    When we’ve posted your gift pack from our box office, we’ll send you an email with a tracking number. We send all gift packs using Registered Post, so you’ll be able to check Australia Post's delivery status by clicking the tracking link in that email.

    If you still haven’t received your gift pack after 10 business days, please call the box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

    What if the film I booked using my gift voucher is cancelled because of the weather?

    If we cancel the film, we’ll issue you a new unique voucher code of the same value so that you can re-book for another screening during the season.

    Do I have to use my gift voucher this season?

    Nope! Our gift vouchers don’t expire. You can redeem any remaining balance on your gift voucher during any future Rooftop Cinema seasons.

    Can I exchange my voucher for cash?

    No, sorry. Our gift vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

    2. After you complete your order, you’ll receive confirmation via email. This email will not contain any vouchers or tickets! But don’t worry, because…
    3. We will use Registered Post to mail your physical gift pack to the postal address you enter at checkout. So please make sure your details are up to date when you check out.
    4. Your gift pack will arrive at your nominated address in a fancy envelope. Inside, you’ll find an ‘admit two’ voucher with the unique code you’ll need to enter when you redeem your two adult tickets, as well as tokens for your Piccolina choc-tops, Cobs popcorn and Sunday Ganim blanket hire. (You redeem these at the box office on the night of your screening.)

    Important! Vouchers in gift packs are not tickets. You (or your recipient) will still need to book two tickets to the film of your choice using the unique voucher code printed on the ‘admit two’ voucher that arrives in the fancy envelope. You must redeem your two tickets to the same screening in a single transaction, as this code can only be used once. Click ‘How to Redeem’ on the left for guidance on redeeming everything that’s included in our gift packs, and check out our FAQ.

    Also important: Rooftop Cinema seating is unreserved and subject to availability. Unredeemed vouchers in a gift pack do not guarantee seats at sold-out screenings. All Rooftop Cinema vouchers and tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

    How to Redeem

    Redeeming gift vouchers

    Lucky you! You’ve received (or treated yourself to) a Rooftop Cinema gift voucher. Here’s how to redeem it for tickets to a film of your choice:

    1. To redeem your voucher, open the email that has your unique voucher code.
    2. Select your preferred screening from our online program, click ‘Buy tickets’, add the number of tickets you’d like to book and click ‘Add to cart’.
    3. Go to checkout.
    4. In the order summary on the right, enter your unique voucher code in the section marked ‘Gift card or discount code’ and click ‘Apply’. (If you’re on mobile, you’ll need to tap ‘Show order summary’ up the top to reveal the discount-code section.)
    5. Enter your contact information on the left and click ‘Continue’.
    6. When you reach the payment step, you’ll have one of two options, depending on your gift voucher’s balance:

      If the balance of your gift voucher is greater than or equal to your order total, you can simply click ‘Complete order’ – no payment is required.

      If the balance of your gift voucher is less than your order total, you’ll be prompted to choose a second payment method for the remaining balance.

    7. Your tickets will be emailed to you as PDFs. You’re all set! We’ll see you at the box office.

      If you don’t use up the balance of your gift voucher in one order, you can spend the remaining balance on Rooftop Cinema tickets in the future, using the same code, until it’s all gone. Our gift vouchers never expire.

      Important! Rooftop Cinema seating is unreserved and subject to availability. An unredeemed gift voucher does not guarantee you a seat at sold-out screenings; you must redeem it to secure tickets. All Rooftop Cinema vouchers and tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash. Read our FAQ to find out more.

      FAQ

      I’ve got a voucher. Do I need to book a ticket?

      Yes! A gift voucher is not a ticket. You must use your unique voucher code to book a ticket (or tickets) to the film you’d like to see. You can’t bring a gift voucher to the box office in lieu of tickets. Check out ‘How to Redeem’ for guidance on redeeming vouchers.

      Okay, I’ve got my voucher. How do I book tickets to a film?

      The journey is slightly different depending on whether you’ve got an email-based gift voucher or an ‘admit two’ voucher from a gift pack. Click ‘How to Redeem’ and scroll to the relevant section for step-by-step guidance on redeeming your type of voucher.

      The unique voucher code on my voucher isn’t working. What should I do?

      Don’t worry. Simply call our box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

      I didn’t receive my gift-voucher email. Did it disappear into the void?

      Hmm. It’s true that when you buy a gift voucher, you should automatically receive an email that contains a unique voucher code. Please check your spam or promotions folders – the email may have been redirected there. If you still can’t find it, please call the box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

      I didn’t receive my gift pack in the mail.

      Please allow up to 10 business days for your gift pack to arrive.

      When we’ve posted your gift pack from our box office, we’ll send you an email with a tracking number. We send all gift packs using Registered Post, so you’ll be able to check Australia Post's delivery status by clicking the tracking link in that email.

      If you still haven’t received your gift pack after 10 business days, please call the box office on (03) 9654 5394 or email us at hello@rooftopcinema.com.au. The box office is open from 5pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

      What if the film I booked using my gift voucher is cancelled because of the weather?

      If we cancel the film, we’ll issue you a new unique voucher code of the same value so that you can re-book for another screening during the season.

      Do I have to use my gift voucher this season?

      Nope! Our gift vouchers don’t expire. You can redeem any remaining balance on your gift voucher during any future Rooftop Cinema seasons.

      Can I exchange my voucher for cash?

      No, sorry. Our gift vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

      With The Big Short, Adam McKay successfully dramatised the GFC; if you struggled through explanations of subprime mortgage bubbles back in ’08 then you’ll appreciate the achievement. He pulls this stuff off because he’s an experienced comedy director who’s not afraid to get a little weird. With Vice, he’s tackling another potentially dry yet important topic: the corruptible cogs of legislative power – specifically, the ones that gave former vice-president Dick Cheney so much authority during the invasion of Iraq. Christian Bale plays Dick and wears his best disguise since Batman.

      Director: Adam McKay
      Stars: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell
