Rooftop Cinema at the Grand Daddy Hotel

Enjoy screenings of cult classics at a retro open-air cinema in the city centre

Quirky and cool, the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street adds a touch of flair to the Mother City’s entertainment offering with the Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema. To celebrate the Festive Season, this edgy rooftop theatre will be screening cult classics every Monday night from 7 December 2015 until 4 January 2016.

Modelled on the concept of a drive-in, the retro cinema invites movie-goers – or Flamingoers – to take a seat amidst the world’s only rooftop trailer park while the stars of the silver screen entertain and charm you in this enchanting setting under the African sky.
