Fall Films

Cruise into Fall with Rooftop Cinema's Drive-In Movie Lineup

Whether you’re into indies, throwbacks, or the biggest Hollywood blockbusters, there's a movie for you.

If you go out in public, remember to follow social distancing guidelines (at least six feet between you and anyone else), wash hands often and thoroughly, and wear a face mask. 

Like everything else, fall isn't turning out how we expected when we rang in the 2020 new year. But at least Rooftop Cinema Club’s keeping its nightly nostalgic escapes at Sawyer Yards going with a slate of fall films that's got something for everyone.

The Drive-In at Sawyer Yards kicks offs its fall schedule on September 21 with a double feature of The Princess Bride and Love & Basketball, followed by Indie Night on September 23. The following week, Rooftop Cinema will be celebrating National Comic Book Day with showings of Guardians of the Galaxy and the Michael Keaton-led Batman Returns, and on October 2–4 the drive-in kicks off its newly dubbed “Spooky Season,” with a variety of flicks perfect for Halloween. Plus, there’re community screenings of The Fifth Element and Death Becomes Her on tap, which means $5 tickets.

Moviegoers can expect the same double-feature arrangement that they’ve already been enjoying, with the first starting at 7:30 p.m. followed by the second movie at 10 p.m., according to a press release. Films are once again being shown on Rooftop Cinema’s 100-foot screen in the Sawyer Yards arts district.

Tickets range from $28–35, depending on your choice of view. Rooftop Cinema Drive-In at Sawyer Yards, 2301 Summer St. More info at rooftopcinemaclub.com. Check out the full roster of films below:
