Now That’s Entertaining: Outdoor Movie Night

July 25, 2013

Summer in the city is not without its charms, but there are times when you simply need a break from the concrete jungle. When skipping town isn’t an option, the best insta-escapism we can think of is a rooftop (or backyard) movie night with friends. This easy-to-assemble production features cocktails, munchies, and some dazzling mise en scene. Action!

Movie selection is key: you’ll never go wrong with a swoony romance.
