THE MONTALBAN SUMMER MOVIE SERIES
ROOFTOP CINEMA IN THE HEART OF HOLLYWOOD
The Montalbán is once again showing outdoor films on its rooftop this summer. The Montalbán Summer Movie Series carries on the historic venue’s tradition of screening films since 1933. The five-month series will run through Halloween night.
Movies playing this summer will include Black Panther, Grease, Inglorious Bastards, Sunset Blvd., Superbad along with many others. Films are scheduled to run five nights per week – every Tuesday through Saturday – with two screening on Friday and Saturday evenings (some exceptions may apply due to private bookings; always check the schedule). Doors open at 6 pm and films start screening 10 minutes after sunset. Prices vary from $10, $15 or $18.
This summer, The Montalbán is also pleased to announce its new culinary partner Umami Burger, who will serves favorites such as its Truffle Burger, Cheesy Tots and famous UFO dessert. Game-changing Impossible Burgers and Sliders (made entirely from plants) will also be on the menu.
Film offerings will span most genres, including action (Top Gun), comedy (Pineapple Express), crime (Jackie Brown), documentary (Amy), drama (Shawshank Redemption), fantasy (Constantine), horror (The Shining), neo-noir (Mulholland Drive), sci-fi (The Fifth Element), thriller (The Usual Suspects), teen/coming of age (Ferris Bueller's Day Off), and western (Tombstone), as well as superhero (The Dark Knight) and LGBTQ-related (Call Me by Your Name) films.
The 2018 Montalbán Summer Movie Series will include recent films (Wonder Woman) as well as classics (Mildred Pierce), with a heavy dose of cult favorites (Pulp Fiction) and classic romance (Breakfast at Tiffany's). There will even be at least one Ricardo Montalbán film thrown in the mix such as the 1949 black and white film noir crime drama Border Incident.
The 2018 film series will also premiere a new laser projector. The venue is eagerly awaiting the install of one of the very first new Canon XEED WUX7000Z projectors for its rooftop screenings. This unparalleled projection solution will be complimented by The Montalbán’s Sound Off™ stereo headphone system and its KV2 Audio system. Another fun tech partner, Simple Booth, provides attendees the opportunity to share memories and connect with friends and family. Guests can take selfies or group pictures and send as images or GIFs.
