Since its highly anticipated opening, locals have been fervently packing the Rooftop Cinema Club. The demand has been so high that November dates are nearly sold out for the month ahead.

Now, the outdoor theater is treating Houstonians to holiday-themed screenings, cold-weather cocktails, and even a chance to catch sold-out shows at the BLVD Place locale (1700 Post Oak Blvd.).

Tickets for December viewings are now on sale, with the program offering holiday favorites and double screenings Thursdays through Sundays.

The popular Rooftop Kids Club will add a special Kids Club meal complete with hot chocolate, small Good Dog hot dog, and coloring sheet. Adults can enjoy an expanded menu of hot cocktails such as hot toddies and muddled wine, plus warm soups in addition to current menu items.

Perhaps most exciting for moviegoers is a new wait list. Fans can arrive at the venue the night of sold-out show and add their name to the wait list. There are no guarantees of admittance, according to a statement. The club’s open seating and games area, as well as the full bar and food from Good Dog Houston, are still open to visitors with no ticket required.

Here is the December schedule of shows. The venue will close temporarily for the winter season and reopen a few months into the New Year, per a statement. Fans are advised to purchase tickets early as shows promise to sell out. Of course, part of the fun could be curling up a hot toddie and waiting to get in on a sold-out evening screening of Love Actually.
