Fulton Market just upped their movie-theater game with a brand new rooftop movie experience. The London-based Rooftop Cinema Club is coming to Chicago and is set to open this May. The Rooftop Cinema Club will premiere its first film on May 26 at the luxe Fulton Market location. Tickets will range from $18–$27 and are set to go on sale starting May 3rd.
That’s right, movie-going just got a whole lot fancier. The cinema club takes a high-end approach to moviegoing. The rooftop experience is filled with dreamy tropical decor, plenty of outdoor games, and a whole range of seating options– from lounge chairs to loveseats and more. There’s also high-tech LED screens, and individual wireless headphones for an optimal viewing experience.
Opening week will include showings of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and other Chicago-based flicks like The Breakfast Club and The Blues Brothers. Guests can order a range of beer, wine, and booze-filled slushies. A curated cocktail list is also available courtesy of The Emily Hotel’s resident mixologist. A good movie theater wouldn’t be complete without snacks, either! There will be candy, popcorn, and a full menu available to all movie-goers.
You can even bring the whole family as screenings before 4:30 PM are open to all ages, while showings after that time are limited to 18+. Movie goers are encouraged to bring your own blanket as the rooftop could be chilly!
There are three ticket types available for two different types of deckchairs. Options include a single Lounge Seat for one, a Lounge Seat + Popcorn for one, and a wide-width Love Seat + Popcorn for two. Standard tickets range from $18.75–$27.75, though the prices do depend on ticket type and day of the week. Other locations include Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, New York and San Diego.
Getting there is as easy as taking Green or Pink line to Morgan Station. If you’re looking to drive, there is unfortunately no parking available onsite. There are several 24-hour parking garages in and around the area.
