Top of the Mark Summer Movie Nights are Back

Jun 04, 2018 01:47PM ● By Fran Miller

Summer Movie Nights are back at Top of the Mark at San Francisco's InterContinental Mark Hopkins, and this year it's all about the laughs. Featuring a range of comedies from the ‘80s classic Airplane to the ‘90s golf comedy, Happy Gilmore, the series runs  Tuesday nights starting June 5 through August 28, 2018, with a comedic break on Tuesday, July 17 when a 60th anniversary screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo will take place. (Vertigo was actually filmed in and around Top of the Mark and InterContinental Mark Hopkins!)

Summer Movie Nights are free of charge and seating is first come, first served, no reservations required. As part of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins’ “Year of Giving” program for 2018, one dollar from a selection of wines for purchase during the films will be donated to Variety Children’s Charity of Northern California. 

Top of the Mark offers stage seating for each movie viewing and features complimentary tastings of select wines each month including Beringer, Chateau St. Jean, and Penfolds. The full Top of the Mark cocktail, tapas, and share plates menus are also available during each movie night as well as complimentary popcorn. Valet and street parking are available.
