If you are having any problems buying tickets, please consult their FAQs page. Tickets must be bought online prior to the event and our events have limited capacities. In some cases, we may have returns available on the door, but this is by no means the case at every screening.
What to do with your ticket?
Once you have booked your ticket via our website, you will receive a super-friendly confirmation email which you can print and show to our box office staff before taking your seats. Or better yet, ‘Go Green’ and show us the email on your smartphone! If you’re still waiting for your ticket to arrive, get in contact with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seating and Blankets
We have plenty of comfy chairs available on our rooftops for you to enjoy. Our seats are not allocated, so arrive nice and early to pick your favourite spot! Once settled, feel free to sit back, relax, and enjoy the film.
Peckham, Stratford and Kensington Rooftops:
30 minutes before your screening time.
Queen of Hoxton:
We also provide blankets for our guests to ensure you stay warm throughout the evening. They’re super soft, and totally free of charge. We only ask that you kindly hand them back to us after the film, so we can offer them to you on your next visit!
Food and Drink
All of our rooftop’s serve fresh food and all manner of drinks. Why not try one of our unique film themed cocktails before your screening at Peckham and Stratford rooftops? Or take advantage of the complimentary BBQ snack offered at Kensington Roof Gardens before each screening. Guests are not allowed to consume their own food and drink on the rooftops. Yummy popcorn, sweet treats and a great selection of mix and match products are also available at each of our cinemas.
The Great British Weather
Rooftop Film Club is an all weather event, so we screen all of our films come rain or shine. If it does decide to rain, we have you covered with our free waterproof ponchos! Only in the case of extreme weather, such as dangerously high winds, will we cancel a screening. Otherwise the show goes on!
What to wear
You can wear whatever tickles your fancy! However, you are on a rooftop so we suggest wearing something warm just in case the temperature drops a little when the sun sets. We also have those lovely blankets supplied free of charge to keep you and a loved one as snug as a bug! Fancy Dress: Guests are more than welcome to wear their favourite costumes, and it’s a sure fire way to grab yourself a free treat from our box office!
What to bring
Just bring yourself, your jacket, and the desire to have fun!
Our Kensington and Stratford venues have full wheelchair access. We regret that our Shoreditch and Peckham rooftop's do not have wheelchair access at this time. If you’d like to make special arrangements, please contact us in advance.
Not a problem. However, we kindly ask that you do not smoke within the seating area, and consider other guests on our rooftops … And if you chuck your cigarette butts off the roof you will be punished! Kung Fu style!.
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds on ticket purchases. You can, however, reallocate your tickets to someone else if you can no longer attend a screening you have bought tickets for.
Rooftop Film Club is an 18+ event. We do not allow anyone under the age of 18 to attend our screenings at this time.
You can now become a Rooftop Film Club member to receive special discounts and giveaways at each of our venues. Please visit the Membership page for more info!
If you would like to book a corporate night, please contact our office on 020 7635 6655. Our office hours are: 9am - 6pm, Mon - Fri.
Our rooftop bars at Peckham and Stratford are open early during the summer, where you can enjoy great drinks and tasty food, along with the best views of London. Feel free to join us after the film to carry on the rooftop fun!
All of our bars accept cash and debit/credit cards. We’re just making sure you don’t miss out on our irresistible popcorn!
