The rooftop cinema is back for the summer!

The ultra-trendy rooftop bar and restaurant E.P. & L.P. boasts some of the best views in West Hollywood, so when you add an outdoor cinema with a gorgeous L.A. sunset as a backdrop,  you know you’re in for a treat. Melrose Rooftop Theater will be lighting up the adjacent L.P. open-air space with all your favorite cult classics and recent releases, starting with Dirty Dancing on July 20.

E.P. & L.P. first began hosting the outdoor theatre in May showing throwbacks like Pretty Woman and after the lockdown happened, they’ve been on pause. Nonetheless, they’ve hit play again so you can take in the incredible views, put on your wireless headphones and allow yourself to be fully immersed in the magic. The show starts at sunset so you can soak up the last bit of sun as the stars begin to light up the sky.

Since the hotspot is known for its delicious craft cocktails and glorious Southeast Asian food, it makes perfect sense that their offerings are available for the screening. While it’s not the full dining room menu, there’ll be things like cauliflower tacos, fish tacos, or a fried chicken sandwich that comes with waffle fries or popcorn as a side for $45 (including the movie ticket). Of course, what would this experience be without a cocktail in hand? You’ll be able to order any of their divine drinks too.

For your health and safety, the organizers have put the following measures and restrictions in place that are compliant with current COVID-19 protocols:

  • You will be subject to a temperature check upon arrival

  • If you are feeling unwell or have a fever please do not attend the screening of the feature film

  • You will be required to wear a mask while making the journey from the lobby to the restaurant and the restaurant to the rooftop cinema.

  • You will not be required to wear your mask while dining or watching the film but will need to wear should you approach the bar or the bathrooms.

  • Seats will be sold in lots of two and four configurations. At this time we will not be selling single tickets so that we can accommodate as many guests as is practical given the reduced seating capacity under the COVID social distancing guidelines.

  • All headsets are sanitized after each use and guests are provided with individual headset ear covers for your single-use at the time of your visit

  • All beanbags are sanitized daily

  • All blankets are laundered after each use

  • The MRT will have a dedicated sanitation station for your utilization

  • Drinks and snacks can be purchased from our concession stand but must be consumed in your allocated seats- there is no congregating at the popcorn stand/bar or open areas.
