Rooftop Cinema on South Lake

A baking parking lot under a hot sun is nobody’s idea of a fun place to be. But once the sun sets and the stars come out, a car park rooftop—along with some beach chairs, blankets, a picnic a basket of goodies, and a big screen for a nighttime flick—may be just the ticket as summer comes [...]
