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 will surely cure any Monday blues.

Its unique outdoor set-up makes for a fun, colourful and cosy way to celebrate some silver-screen classics – Top Gun, Shawshank Redemption, Moulin Rouge and A Beautiful Mind, to name a few.

Old school vibes

This rooftop cinema has a decidedly old-school 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 (R125 per ticket) among the seven vintage Airstream trailers on the Grand Daddy’s rooftop, in one of the three seating options: general; the loveseat, or the couch.

Movie munchies

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

Meat (R120) and vegetarian (R130) picnic options are offered, and each basket serves two people. Baskets include: samoosas, spring rolls, crumbed chicken or halloumi fingers (vegetarian), skinny fries, and dipping sauces. (Halaal 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.
