There's something about watching a movie on a rooftop that gives us all the feels. Movie theatres are great and all, but nothing is quite as good as sitting outside in the cool autumn air, with room to move around while enjoying a cinematic masterpiece. That's why East Austin Hotel is bringing us Upside Cinema, a brand new outdoor movie series. Grab your friends because East Austin Hotel's Upside Bar will be providing the rest.
According to CultureMap, Vulcan Video is partnering with the hotel to bring us free movies every Thursday, for the rest of the year! The series began on Thursday, Sept. 5 and will continue through December. Every Thursday, aside from holidays, you can head on up to the lounge at 8:30 p.m. and join the rest of the crowd for a fan favorite. Seating is first-come, first-serve so we highly recommend getting there nice and early.
Tomorrow on Thursday, Sept. 12, Streets of Fire is showing and then the following Thursday Times Square will be displayed on the bigscreen. We're unsure of what films to expect for the coming months, though themes such as "Multiple Maniacs" for October, "Macho Mustached Men" for November, and "Horrible Holidays" for December have been announced.
Drinks and eats will be discounted by $1-2 in celebration of the coolest series to be unveiled in Austin for months. East Austin Hotel has an awesome restaurant, incredible pool, and luxurious rooms incase you're looking at staying for more than just a Thursday night. Austin has tons of incredible hotels and places to eat, but with this new rooftop movie series, East Austin Hotel just might take the cake.
