Open Air Cinema Rotterdam

08 - 26 Aug


Cinema under the stars in Rotterdam

The drive in cinema is a typical American phenomenon from the 1950s. Together with your date you drove to a large parking lot and the movie sound could be heard through your car radio. As icing on the cake, you could kiss the girl on the backseat of your car after the movies. Sounds good, doesn't it? Rotterdam offers a modern version of the open air cinema at the Museumpark. In the second half of the summer, the Museumpark in Rotterdam is transformed into an outdoor cinema with a huge screen with the impressive Boijmans - Van Beuningen Museum as a romantic setting.

Open Air Cinema Rotterdam: on a chair or on the ground?

Real diehards with outdoor cinema experience sit on a cloth on the ground. If you prefer to make yourself comfortable, bring your own chair, but it is also possible to rent a chair. That means no hustle and bustle and it's a bargain: just 1 euro per evening.

Open Air Cinema Rotterdam with Live Music

In the Rotterdam Open Air Cinema there are plenty of food stalls and before the start of the film, a daily changing band will play live music from 7 pm. A sandwich, some french fries or other snacks as a starter before the movie. The atmosphere at the Open Air Cinema Rotterdam is simply unique and on a summer evening you will have a good time under the starry sky of instead of in one of the regular movie theatres in Rotterdam...
