Community screenings are held Wednesdays at 5:15, with tickets $5 for up to two guests, $10 for three or more. All the proceeds of the weekly community screenings go to charity.  For other screenings, tickets range from $30 - 45 for a vehicle, depending on occupancy and screening time.

Movies are projected onto a 52-foot screen, and audio is broadcast through the FM transmitter radio in guests' cars.

Rooftop Cinema is entirely contactless. Guests are required to watch the film from within their vehicle and must wear a mask or face covering anytime they are outside the vehicle for any reason, including to visit portable restrooms on site or retrieve food with contactless order and pickup. Guests are also welcome to bring their own food and drink.
