The Montalbán's rooftop oasis – outfitted with a bar, concession stand and full kitchen – provides an open-air movie theatre experience complete with a large projection screen, state-of-the-art projector, noise-canceling headphones, fresh-popped popcorn and even blankets for a chilly night.
This year – 2019 – the historic venue celebrates 10 years of rooftop entertainment and enters its fifth year of its ongoing outdoor movie series, now entitled Rooftop Movies at The Montalbán. The Montalbán's staff curates films from all eras including Hollywood classics, cult favorites, select current releases, premieres and special presentations with cast and crew when possible.
Doors open at 6:00pm, which allows attendees to DRINK beer, wine, mix drinks and the ever-popular hand-crafted Ramos Sangria; DINE thanks to Umami Burger who continues as the venue's rooftop culinary partner (serving Impossible Burgers much to the delight of many vegetarians); PLAY a game of giant Jenga or ham-it-up in the selfie-friendly Simple Booth area; or CHILL in a relaxing beach chair or loveseat while listening to a hand-selected musical soundtrack (over the speakers or in your headphones) until the movie begins. The evening's movie selection begins screening once it's dark (usually around 8:00 p.m.).
