Just like last year, the big screen of the Pleinbioscoop will be erected on the Kop van Zuid, right in front of Hotel New York. Here you can watch the best films in the open air with a view over the river Maas.
From Wednesday, August 11 to Sunday, August 29 for nineteen evenings a mix of films is shown in collaboration with LantarenVenster. There is a versatile program, it’s a nice selection of arthouse films and big box office hits.
From Promising Young Woman about Cassie (Carey Mulligan) who is traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path to the Dutch movie I Don’t wanna dance. About an aspiring teenage dancer finds himself torn between his increasingly destructive mother and his own happiness. And from recent Oscar-winner Nomadland to the classic Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain.
Summer of Soul is a feature documentary by Questlove about the legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival which celebrated African American music and culture, and promoted Black pride and unity. The movie includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly and the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.
During the event a number of special people and groups are invited to programme an evening. House of Knowledge, Stichting GayRotterdam and Elten Kiene (spoken-word artist and co-founder and organizer of Woorden Worden Zinnen) show their chosen movies.
Due to Covid-19, the seats at the Pleinbioscoop are set up 1,5 metres from each other. The ticket costs € 11. If you want to support the Pleinbioscoop, you pay €14 and with a Cineville pass you get a discount.
You can also book a table on the terrace of Hotel New York. On this terrace, you will be served and you can sit next to someone from the same household. A ticket consists of 4 seats at one table on the terrace of Hotel New York including drinks and headphones and with a 20 euro spending credit for a nice snack before or during the film.
The gates opens at 8.30 pm. The event is outside and it can be windy. So you can bring your umbrella or blanket.
