Rooftop Films in BrooklynNew York City, USA

Open-air cinemas pop up like mushrooms in cities around the world, but you'd be hard-pressed to find any cooler than this chilled-out setup that glows over the rooftops of Brooklyn. Situated next to Gowanus Canal, the Old American Can Factory plays host to Rooftop Films, an annual film festival that boasts more than two-dozen outdoor cinemas dotted across NYC.

Catch a feature film or a short flick on the terrace, then explore the exhibitions and performance houses on the factory's lower levels. With more than two decades of tradition behind it, the festival is a must-do if you're looking for a different take on the Big Apple.

Check the Rooftop Films website for current ticket prices.
