We all know the problem of “the summer in the city”. What to do, how to deal with it? How best to enjoy the beautiful weather? Of course, it’s always possible to meet up with friends or practice sports, but if you were looking for less typical entertainment, Krakow might just have something to offer.
Letni Projektor is a summer outdoor screening project, created with the support of the U.S. Consulate General in Kraków. The concept is to attract people to come to less-frequented parts of town, where they will be able to enjoy a movie (always in English!) and discover a new location that they perhaps always walked past, but never really noticed. Each week it’s a different spot and a different movie.
The films vary – it can be anything from “Top Gun” to “Big Fish” – and so do the people. The viewers are of all ages and backgrounds, so anyone should feel welcome. In almost all locations the seating is not limited, there is no entry fee and sometimes there are even surprises, such as lottery or sightseeing tours around the location.
For full transparency, I need to add that yours truly is also one of the organisers. Hopefully, this only adds to the credibility of the information – this project has already been running for a couple of years, it’s always great fun and, well, everyone seems to enjoy it. For updates on locations, please follow us on Facebook or the page of the U.S Consulate General.
