The Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema

Celebrating the silver screen in a outdoor cinema setting – right beneath the African night sky, the Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema is set among seven vintage Airstream trailers on the rooftop of the Grand Daddy Hotel. Snuggle up, order a picnic basket & some “bubbly” – this open air rooftop cinema is a perfect Cape Town experience, open all year round!

With regular showings of films that have stayed in a happy corner of our memories, the Pink Flamingo is part drive-in, part social event and part adventure. Set in the world’s only rooftop trailer park hotel, the cinema also available for exclusive bookings and private screenings.

There are three seating options for booking movie tickets: General Seating, the Love Seat and the Couch – all these tickets include a welcome drink, bag of sweets and popcorn.
