The rooftop cinema is back for the summer!

The ultra-hip 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 Theatre 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 4.

E.P. & L.P. first began hosting the outdoor theatre last year, showing throwbacks like Pretty Woman but after the lockdown happened, they were mostly 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-inspired food, it makes perfect sense that their offerings are available for each screening. While it’s not the full dining room menu, you can select items from the all-new, three-course ‘Dinner & a Movie’ menu for $49 per person (including the movie ticket). You’ll have starters like this delicious Spicy Ahi Tuna, marinated tomatoes with shiso & fresh tostadas, Gnocchi Pomodoro or Angus Steak for mains and for dessert there’s the internet-breaking Basque cheesecake. 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 a number of measures and restrictions in place that is compliant with current COVID-19 protocols. So you still get to flop onto those comfy beanbags with a blanket but everything will be cleaned between uses.

Location: 603 North La Cienega Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069,  United States
