Pink Flamingo Cinema: Rooftop Movies in Cape Town

Pink Flamingo Cinema: Rooftop Movies in Cape Town Uber Newsroom

Cure the Monday blues at the Grand Daddy Hotel’s Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema.

The Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel’s old school-style Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema is the answer to any Blue Monday. The unique outdoor setting makes for a fun, colourful and cosy way to celebrate some silver-screen classics.

Old-school vibes

We love the vintage bioscope feel, kind of like a drive-in – the only difference is its fabulous location, at the only rooftop trailer-park hotel in the city. Snuggle up for your movie (R130 per ticket) among the seven vintage Airstream trailers on Grand Daddy’s rooftop, in the general section, or on the couch.

Movie munchies

Included in your ticket is a welcome drink, bag of sweets and, of course, some popcorn. For an additional cost, you can add a delicious picnic basket to your movie experience.

Meat (R175) and vegetarian (R150) picnic options are offered, and each basket serves two people. Baskets include: homemade Jerusalem hummus, artisan bread & butter, hand cut chips in both baskets with local artisan charcuterie selection and sumac roasted chicken wings & aioli in the meat basket and local artisan cheeses & chutney, homemade sweet potato falafels, griddled marinated vegetables, local olives and homemade butter roti in the vegetarian basket. (Halaal and vegan picnics are also available on request.)

Please note Picnic orders must be placed when you book your tickets, not upon arrival for the movie, to give the staff time to prepare and package your hamper.

Dress warmly, especially on cooler nights – and, in the event of bad weather, please check with the hotel that the movie is still going to be screened.

Movies start at 7pm, but it’s best to arrive early to reserve your seats and enjoy your welcome drink.
