R for strong disturbing violence/sadistic behavior, grisly images, language, and nudity.
USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack’s point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Along the way we experience Jack’s descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge – a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale.
Doors, Umami and Bar open at 5:30 pm, The Movie starts just after sunset ( 7:30 pm )
The Montalbán Rooftop Movies
Our view from The Montalbán rooftop is spectacular. We are at the center of one of the most famous destinations in the world. Join us atop our historic 1920’s theater The Montalbán Rooftop Movie Series. Our film selection is completely curated in-house and is the centerpiece for evening social dates starting at 6:00pm.
You may sit near (or be entertained by!) new filmmakers, actors, and celebrities who drop in with friends and loved ones. Indulge in tasty eats curated by our culinary partner: Umami Burger. We also offer an exceptional variety of craft beers, remarkable wine selections and mixed drinks that are trending on social media nightly. Our Ramos Sangria is becoming world famous.
Swing by early to enjoy our food and beverage offerings and stake out the perfect seats. You can even play a game of Jenga and act out in our new selfie video/photo booth! Just after nightfall, the nightly presentation of iconic films begin. The concession stand is open for at least an hour into the screening, which boasts freshly popped popcorn. If you need to use the restrooms, you can still listen to the movie in your own headphone set. Unique hand-selected musical soundtracks play on the speakers and in the headphones until the movie begins.
Our stunning rooftop will celebrate 10 years of diverse arts & entertainment in 2019 (look for some big celebrations).
We hope to see you soon, and often for an evening under the stars with Fantastic Films, Fine Food, and Friends.
