This Ain't Your Dad's Drive-In
A new kind of moviegoing experience will come to Fort Worth this fall when Rooftop Cinema Club opens on the outdoor terrace of The Worthington Renaissance hotel on Tuesday, October 4.
According to a release, Rooftop Cinema Club Downtown Fort Worth will be a permanent outpost at the hotel, repurposing The Worthington’s former sport court on a portion of its outdoor mezzanine deck, called The Terrace. The experience will offer large outdoor, state-of-the-art LED screen viewing of hand-picked classics, cult films, and recent releases picked by its programming team.
Prior to the film, guests will be able to enjoy lawn games, food and beverage offerings, and skyline views. For the movie, they will pre-select their choice of deck chair and receive personal, wireless headsets to enjoy the film.
“After our successful Drive-In and Summer Series in Dallas last year, we longed to find a permanent home for our flagship rooftop experience in North Texas,” said Gerry Cottle, Rooftop Cinema Club founder, in a statement. “I’m enthusiastic we have found the ideal rooftop in downtown Fort Worth and that locals and visitors will enjoy this cinematic experience, whether for a fun night with friends and family or a date night.”
Rooftop Cinema Club currently operates multiple locations at mixed-use buildings and hotels in Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Diego, and London.
Guests can expect fan-favorite snacks, popcorn, soft drinks, beer, wine, and signature cocktails, as well as savory handhelds and desserts. Rooftop Cinema Club has its own branded fare, and The Worthington Renaissance’s food and beverage team have created some of their own offerings.
Tickets for the public, which will be accessible online and on mobile devices, will go on sale in early September at rooftopcinemaclub.com. The movie schedule and titles for October will be announced at that time, along with its food and drink menus and additional details about the venue.
