Watch a classic under the stars

With plenty of cult classics, as well as new releases to choose from, an outdoor cinema showing will make the perfect end - or start! - to your date night. Better still, with Rooftop Film Club you get to enjoy skyline views too. And if your night isn’t over when the film finishes, why not pop over to Ballie Ballerson for a cocktail, or take a trip down memory lane at Four Quarters?
