Pleinbioscoop Rotterdam off to a successful start

Pleinbioscoop Rotterdam off to a successful start

The 2018 edition of Pleinbioscoop (open-air cinema) kicked off last night in Rotterdam's Museumpark. The opening film, The Shape of Water, was attended by more than 2500 people.
Pleinbioscoop is a recurring event in August. The idea? Rent a chair or bring your own and watch a special selection of the best arthouse and Hollywood films from the past year. The event lasts the better part of a month and in addition to the main screenings, also features Dutch films, live music and surprises. The Pleinbioscoop screenings will last until 26 August.

Pleinbioscoop programme

A number of large audience favorites will be screened, such as the teen story Lady Bird, the romantic Call Me By Your Name and the moving Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Furthermore, action films such as Black Panther and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will also be shown on the big screen. International selections include the Australian film Sweet Country and the French-Lebanese The Insult.

Classics & Kid-friendly movies

Every year, the organizers choose two classics. This year the nostalgic family favorite Back to the Future (1985) and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975), the masterpiece by director Miloš Forman who passed away earlier this year. Looking for something to watch with kids? There is also a children's programme. Children's films are shown in a special warehouse on the premises every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
