Think that cozying up under the summer stars atop a picturesque Amsterdam rooftop, while watching a film classic and consuming your tasty drinks and eats sounds as if you might, in fact, be in a movie? Sometimes, the perfect evening is actually possible. Rooftop Movie Nights premiered their first film of their Rooftop sessions just a few weeks ago on the 31st of May. Since then, their following two showings were a major success, both selling out well in advance online. With both The Big Lebowski and Intouchables in just their first weekend, there’s bound to be a great lineup ahead. From romantic comedies to tearjerkers to a feel-good Disney classic, it seems to be an event for everyone.
Currently, you can find these films screenplayed on the 19th floor of the Ramada Hotel in Amsterdam West, but locations are set to be alterable. Tickets are only available online through their website, where you can also preview the upcoming agenda to make sure you don’t miss your favorite. Movies start at 21.30 and your ticket grants you early access to rooftop facilities, not to mention the hotel bar and restaurant (open all day) on the 17th floor for some pre- and post-entertainment delights. Even better news, your ticket gets you one complimentary welcome drink and savory popcorn. There will even be an intermission incase the unfortunate event that you run dry mid-showing. You’ll be properly looked after for the night!
Look out for the next scheduled announcement for films of all genres and for all age-ranges by keeping up with Rooftop sessions on their Facebook page (lhttps://www.facebook.com/rooftopmovienights?fref=ts). Tickets start at €12.50 and can be found online at www.rooftopmovienights.com. Weather imperfections won’t hinder Rooftop Movienights – blankets and heating to be provided on exceptionally chilly nights and ponchos during the rain if the bartender can’t cure your woes, but dress accordingly. Be sure to claim your sofa and tickets early for the next, you won’t want to miss it!
