Nightlife in Lan Kwai Fong, without breaking the bank.

  1. Rooftop Cinema Hong Kong is for anyone who enjoys watching a movie in the open air rather than in another refrigerated shopping mall. What if all you want to do is just relax and have fun without having to worry about looking your best. If you are visiting Hong Kong for a short trip and want an easy night and something quiet with the other half then (but don’t want to miss out on the nightlife around Lan Kwai Fong) then the rooftop cinema is really the best choice ever, without breaking the bank.
    Better make your reservation early or else risk the chance of missing out on the fun these chaps are having.
    You get to the full nostalgia of the college openair cinema only now its under the stars and above the smog, atop one of Hong Kong’s best artsy landmark the Fringe club for just HK$ 125 and the price is inclusive of a drink.
    Where else are you going to find all of this in Lan Kwai Fong?
    The people organising the one and only rooftop cinema in Hong Kong are more excited than a car full of models having a petrol fight at a gas station. The expat crowds aren’t just couples, you’ll find like minded friends trying to catch up with each other and its also a fun idea to book the next screening for the next company outing. A percentage of proceeds from the screenings go to the Clean Air Network in Hong Kong and so you can be sure that you are doing your part in helping to minimize your carbon footprint, even when you are having fun.
    Tickets for the previous two screenings sold out way before the actual screening date, the fringe club rooftop holds about 90 people and all 90 seats got snapped up like hot cakes.
    The Program for April and May:
    Donnie Darko // Tuesday 19 April
    Blow // Wednesday 20 April
    Point Break // Tuesday 26 April
    Movie of your choice as voted on the rooftop Cinema’s facebook for 28 April (hurry voting ends soon)
    Pulp Fiction // Wednesday 4 May
    Here is how rooftop cinema works:
    They don’t use tickets at Rooftop Cinema, but they will put your name at the door.
    Please note: There are no allocated seats, so first come – first seated. Rooftop Cinema is an all weather event, so bring warm clothes, a blanket and some rain protection if the weather looks unpleasant.
    You can make a booking online for rooftop cinema on their website, they take paypal.
    A little taste of what to look forward to.
    Doors open at 7:30 pm. Show starts at 8:30 pm.
    Hopefully Rooftop Cinema at the Fringe Club can be a regular addition to the Hong Kong nightlife scenery and they can keep adding extra films to the program as long as they can.
