Boasting incredible city views, a bar, pizza on delivery and a retro popcorn machine, Rooftop Movies is an urban oasis six storeys above the hubbub of Northbridge. We love a grungy/chic vibe created by old-school trailers, pink plastic flamingos and rickety wire spool tables. At Rooftop Movies, it’s almost as much fun hanging out before the movie as it is watching it. Best part? Even if the film’s dull, the skyline never is. Top floor, City of Perth Roe Street Carpark, Northbridge.
