That’s not the only candy the Rooftop Cinema Club has in store.

“The Polar Express”, “The Holiday” and “The Shining” are part of the bundle-up Make-it-Snow program.
Just make sure the movie you want to see is showing on DTLA or Santa Monica and when there is a special event like “Elf” bingo or the opportunity to do your most convenient jam jams.
