I Will Keep Coming Back to Rooftop Cinema Club South Beach

I took a short break from all those rooftop bars and decided to look for something even more unique.

Honestly, I was looking for something special as I wanted to impress my date. I was thinking about a cinema, but then I thought, there is nothing special about taking a date to the cinema anymore as everyone is doing that. Also, I didn’t like the selection of new titles. Most of them are either action and fantasy with superheroes, or another unoriginal horror. I mean, the only thing I could choose at Silverspot Cinema was Garfield.

And I would choose it if didn’t find something even more special. I found a spot that perfectly fits what I have been doing in recent times, a rooftop spot where you can watch older releases. The place is called Rooftop Cinema Club South Beach.

After I checked the upcoming shows, the right solution was quite easy. I knew I would have a perfect date there. The movie I chose is a well-known romantic comedy – Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. That seemed like the best choice for taking a girl out.

The movie was airing at 7:25 pm, so I planned a whole evening according to that. My plan was to enjoy that funny romance, and then leave just at the right time to visit Serena Rooftop Bar, a perfect spot I recently checked.

And now, I’ll stop bugging you with my love life, and start sharing insights about that rooftop cinema.

Let’s Start with the Ambient

Is there a better way to spend the evening than watching the sunset? Well, we are here to watch the movie actually, but you simply cannot ignore it. It was amazing. Like a cheat code, as my date was quite impressed, I could see that on her face.

Just check out this photo, and you will understand what I am talking about.

Another interesting detail is that there are no big surround systems. You have to wear headphones while watching the movie. That also creates a special ambiance. Just remove the headset during the movie, and you will be amazed at the silence present in the crowd. I could only hear a couple giggling a few rows away.

I never watched a movie this way. I mean, I used headphones before at home, but it is a completely different experience when the whole crowd is just sitting silently. That is what makes Rooftop Cinema Club so unique. I don’t know about a similar place here in Miami.

It’s Still a Rooftop Bar

Even though the movies are the main reason people are coming here, there is a bar, a pretty decent one actually. Most people will just take popcorn, and I get it, you just can’t watch a movie without snacks.

This is all you need for a good movie in this place. My date also got popcorn for the start.

But you know how it goes with popcorn, I would eat the whole bag before the movie even started. So I quickly went for another bag. However, I also decided to make things more interesting. I saw they were making cocktails. I chose House Daiquiri and Fernetsies, and of course, another bag of popcorn.

The menu is surprisingly good for a cinema, you can check it out here.

I saw they got pizza and some other food, but I skipped that. As I already mentioned, I planned a dinner at Serena Rooftop after the movie.

Overall, this spot is surely something you shouldn’t miss. It is a comfortable and chill place, and it was in my case, a perfect solution for a unique date. But you can come here with friends or even alone. Having a great time is guaranteed.

And that’s it for today. And if you are wondering how it all went at Serena. Well, I will keep that for myself.

One thing is sure. Rooftop Cinema Club South Beach is definitely on my list of favorite rooftops in Miami from now on.


For the last decade, I’ve been all about telling great stories online, stories that grab people’s attention and mean something. Right now, I’m working at No3 Social, a cool spot for rooftop dining. It’s my job to put into words the amazing experience of eating way up there, so everyone can get excited about trying it out. I’m always on the lookout for what’s fresh and interesting. At No3 Social, I use what I find to highlight the best of the rooftop scene. Whether it’s the newest hot spot or a classic favorite with a twist, I’m here to tell stories that do more than just give you information - they get you pumped to go out and enjoy what the city has up in the air.
