Come on out and celebrate San Diegans’ love of film as the April slate is loaded with Hollywood’s 
most-popular classic films sprinkled around award-winning recent releases

Rooftop Cinema Club San Diego, the iconic venue beneath the stars that revolutionized the outdoor movie-going experience during its debut season in 2018, will return to the Manchester Grand Hyatt in a little less than a month. Hollywood heartthrobs John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will get the party started when they star in a GREASE sing-along party on opening night on Wednesday, April 3. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the film will begin at 8. Check out other times we have visited the rooftop cinema club, one evening I made a video explaining a bit, and one night we went down for their fall schedule.

“I am so thrilled to welcome the beautiful people of San Diego back to the Manchester Grand Hyatt to celebrate peace, love and most-importantly, great film,” said Rooftop Cinema Club Founder Gerry Cottle, Jr.

Fans will be treated to a spectacular April schedule that starts with a special music-themed lineup. While Grease gets the party started on April 3, Rooftop Cinema Club’s opening week schedule also includes a BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY sing-along on Thursday night, April 4, A STAR IS BORN on April 5, and THE GREATEST SHOWMAN on April 6.

Those who missed the Rooftop Cinema Club San Diego experience last year should head out to the roof this season. Rooftop Cinema Club is revolutionizing the outdoor movie-going experience as a place where friends and loved ones gather to enjoy amazing films, fantastic food, and top-shelf drinks, all while lounging in the moonlit shadow of the Downtown San Diego skyline. 

And as if that isn’t enough of a draw in and of itself, Rooftop Cinema Club’s guests are treated to state-of-the-art HD video, studio-quality wireless headphones, soft lounge-style deck chairs and cozy blankets for cool nights.

April’s Rooftop Cinema Club San Diego schedule offers a little bit of everything for movie enthusiasts from musical sing-alongs to great films of the 90s, anniversary classics and even an April 20 celebration of National 420 Day.

Guests will enjoy SELENA, starring Jennifer Lopez, and re-enacting the brief but beautiful life of Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla-Perez. Fans attending the Selena showing will be treated to red roses, red cocktails and other surprises.
