The following synopsis for ‘The Invitation,’ which was written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, has been released by Drafthouse Films:

In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama, the tension is palpable when Will (Logan Marshall-Green) shows up to his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard) and new husband, David’s (Michiel Huisman) dinner party.

The pair’s tragic past haunts an equally spooky present: Amid Eden’s suspicious behavior and her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, ‘The Invitation’ blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will—and the audience—are unsure what threats are real or imagined.

Starting with a rooftop in London’s Shoreditch, Rooftop Film Club has expanded globally with five venues in the UK, including the prestigious Kensington Roof Gardens, which is part of Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited portfolio of retreats. There are also two rooftops in both NYC and LA. In addition, more new venues are being added globally throughout 2016.

Rooftop Film Club aims to offer audiences with a different cinema experience, in part by the venues’ views, street food and themed cocktails, as they watch cult, classic or new release movie. Rooftop Film Club’s guests can recline on deckchairs and enjoy sound on high quality wireless headphones while they watch their favorite movies on the big screen.
