Best Rooftop Theater (2005)

Gachet Coffee Lounge

The movies roll on Monday nights, the least trafficked of any on Greenville Avenue. They're shown on a projection screen on the deck, two stories above the street entrance to Gachet, a coffee house with a Europhile complex that, coincidentally, serves the best espresso in town. Some of the movies are iconic (North by Northwest), some are cult faves (Napoleon Dynamite), some are bad (21 Grams). But all are screened for free. It's a different feeling, watching a movie beneath an open sky, surrounded by coffee tables, downtown behind you, drunks below. Maybe rewarded is the right word; you feel rewarded for having found this place.


All-access pass to top stories, events and offers around town.
