Every August from the second week, we have an open air cinema for two and a half weeks with a nice blend of commercial and art house movies.
Scheduled these weeks are i.e. Her, Behind the Candelabra (w. a brilliant Michael Douglas as Liberace), Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo, 12 years a slave and one of my fave’s from this year, the documentary Twenty feet from Stardom.
It’s (back) in the center at the Museumpark next to the Boijmans van Beuningen museum with plenty of space to bring your own chair or (inflatable) couch along, plus of course chairs which you can rent there for € 1.
I like going there and meeting up with friends when the weather is dry and warm-ish but I have been there too with pouring rain :-).
You’re allowed to bring your own drinks and food too but there are enough stalls with beverages and food if you’re feeling peckish and thirsty.
It’s a great event to catch up on movies and friends, celebrate your birthday like I do there with cake while watching a film with a few hundred people.
Planning to see most of the movies? Then get a discount ticket in advance for € 30 which you can share with one person or use it for 10 movies. There will be tickets available too at the venue itself but be aware to come earlier before the screening starts as some movies tend to sell out.
