Themed nights and celebrations are a popular attraction at Rooftop Cinema Club and May is no exception. Among the special events that dot the May schedule…

Family-Friendly Screenings every Sunday

Every Sunday, Rooftop Cinema Club opens its traditionally 18-and-over venue to younger moviegoers so the whole family can enjoy a movie night under the stars. For May, that schedule includes The Incredibles (May 9), The Goonies (May 16), Shrek (May 23) and E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial (May 30). Be sure to select the “Kids and Teens” ticket for anyone 17-and-under, and as always, it is recommended that guests check out the film’s rating before making plans as ratings will vary.

Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero is located at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, San Diego (92101) on the open-air 4th Floor Sport Terrace of the Harbor Tower with stunning skyline views. Doors for the cinema open an hour before screenings with movie start times between 8-8:15 p.m. Opening early allows guests plenty of time to select their first-come-first-serve seats and enjoy the “Social Cinema” aspect of Rooftop Cinema Club, which includes amazing sunsets, classic table games, and fantastic food and drink. When the films begin, moviegoers will find themselves completely immersed in their favorite movie moments through high-fidelity personal headphones and a crystal-clear picture on Rooftop Cinema Club’s big screen. Rooftop Cinema Club is open exclusively to adults 18-and-over, however, every Sunday features family-friendly screenings that allow the whole family to enjoy a fun film under the stars.

Adhering to COVID protocols, Rooftop Cinema Club’s tickets are sold exclusively online. Walk-up ticket sales are not available. For 18-and-over moviegoers, tickets start at $17.50 (Sun-Thurs) and $18.50 (Fri & Sat) for a single adjustable lounge seat. For $20.50 (Sun-Thurs) and $21.50 (Fri & Sat), guests 18-and-over can purchase a single lounge seat that comes with a 46 oz. bucket of Rooftop Cinema Club’s famous fresh-popped popcorn. And for couples, Rooftop Cinema Club offers a special double-sized love-seat that also comes with a 46 oz. bucket of popcorn for each guest, and those tickets are $24 (Sun-Thurs) and $25 apiece (Fri & Sat) and must be booked in pairs. Rooftop Cinema Club also offers a 15% Military Discount and a 10% Student Discount for guests 18-and-over (valid ID required at check-in). And for family-friendly screenings, tickets are $13.50 for a “Kids and Teens” lounge seat (ages 17-and-under). Booking fees apply. Tickets and information for all shows are available on the official Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero website: www.rooftopcinemaclub.com/embarcadero. And again, as a reminder, Rooftop Cinema Club is a ‘limited capacity’ venue and tickets have been selling out fast!!

One of the signature elements of Rooftop Cinema Club is the unique food and beverage offering presented by the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, with a menu that features specialty plates and drinks, including a variety of signature cocktails and several craft beer and wine options. Rooftop Cinema Club also offers a robust concession stand with fresh popcorn and a large selection of candy and soda. New for 2021, concessions will be available with contactless order and pick-up to make movie snacking both safe and convenient.

In response to the pandemic and with safety as its number one priority, Rooftop Cinema Club has adapted its operations. Besides operating at a limited capacity with socially distanced seating, online ticketing and contact-free concessions, Rooftop Cinema Club is completely cashless, so guests should come prepared with a debit or credit card. Sanitization stations are available throughout the venue, and team members will wear masks, routinely change gloves and regularly wipe down surfaces. Headphones are sanitized after each use and individually wrapped for each guest. For the time being, Rooftop Cinema Club is not offering its traditional pillows and blankets, but guests are encouraged to bring their own. Also due to health guidelines, Rooftop Cinema Club is not able to offer bottomless popcorn, but it has increased the size of the venue’s popcorn cups from 32 oz. to 46 oz. Team members will enforce safety rules required for guests, including masks required anytime guests are not actively eating or drinking and ensuring social distancing between parties.

There are numerous transportation options to reach Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero, including taxis, ride-shares and the San Diego Trolley. Self-parking is available for guests who elect to drive. The Manchester Grand Hyatt’s parking garage is offering $11 self-parking (up to 4 hours, based on availability) with validation from the box office.

The Manchester Grand Hyatt is offering a 30% room discount for guests who would like to stay at the hotel following a night at Rooftop Cinema Club Embarcadero. The discount code is available on the cinema email ticket confirmations for online bookings. This offer cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions.

Rooftop Cinema Club is now taking bookings for corporate parties, private events and special occasions, complete with pre-movie reception options and full, private use of the outdoor cinema. To learn more or to book a unique and COVID-safe event, visit https://rooftopcinemaclub.com/partnerships/.
