ROOFTOP FILM CLUB ANNOUNCES AUGUST SCREENINGS

Rooftop Film Club continues its sky-high domination of London’s best rooftops and announces a sensational August programme filled with one-off events and rooftop firsts.

  • Take a gamble on The Big Short as the price of cocktails are dictated by the RFC Index
  • Ballotté like Billy during Dance Week, with a ballet lesson held before Brit flick Billy Elliot
  • RooFeast launches with Cachina Peruvian Smoke Shack, Bo San Boy, RockaDollar Dogs and Flamin’ Liberty
  • Chomp-a-long at RooFeast, as East London’s newest street-food destination screens Chef

The Bussey Building will be screening the 2015 comedy-drama The Big Short (3rd August), in Hollywood’s dramatic retelling of the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Feel the suspense as the price of special cocktails are dictated by the RFC stock market. Keep an eye on the bar for the Aperol price drop and broker a deal for some refreshing spritz.

With Roof East’s recent announcement to host some of London’s best street food, ‘RooFeast’ is set to be seen as East London’s hottest new street-food destination. On Fridays and Saturdays RooFeast gives rooftoppers a choice of Cachina Peruvian Smoke Shack, delicious Korean BBQ Bo San boy, burger joint Flamin’ Liberty and rooftop favourite RockaDollar Dogs. To celebrate there will be a screening of charming, foodie film Chef (6th August). Chomp-a-long as RooFeast’s food vendors concoct their own delicious versions of lauded chef Carl Casper’s cubanos and yuca fries. Join the gourmet road trip through America’s deep-south with a feel-good soundtrack of New Orleans jazz and cubano in hand.

Dance Week is back and at Roof Feast, limber up for the fun no pressure dance classes held before each screening. Learn Swayze’s snake-hips moves in Dirty Dancing (23rd August) or learn how to ballotté and bourrée like Billy in Brit flick Billy Elliot (26th August). The week ends with a Tatum double whammy, get down and dirty like an Xquisite dancer in Magic Mike (24th August) or practise your fancy footwork in Step-Up (27th August).

New venue Tobacco Dock will play host to 90s Week, kicking off with sassy coming-of-age comedy Clueless (9th August). Or watch everyone’s favourite telekinetic kid Matilda (10th August) outsmart the tyrannical Ms Trunchball, 20 years after she first terrorised the big screen.

Rooftoppers can indulge their inner foodie with bespoke menus from two of London’s most exciting pop-ups, Italian supper club, Forza Win, and former Hawksmoor Head Chef Richard Sandiford’s solo venture, RockaDollar Dogs.

Nespresso will be on hand to serve up the ultimate coffees and a menu of Nespresso Martinis, plus the Spirted Mixers have taken to the skies to concoct lip-smacking cocktails for the summer season.
