Open-air cinema in Slovenia


Those who have already watched a movie in an open-air cinema would agree that having stars in attendance creates a romantic atmosphere. That is probably why the film festivals, such asInternational Dubai Film Festivalare moving out from the 4-walls environment. Nevertheless the open-air cinema is not a recent invention as it dates back to 1916, soon after theLumiere Brothersinvented cinematography in 1895. For more information about open-air cinema facts click here.

If you are in Ljubljana till 18th of August, I suggest you to have a look at summer cinema at Ljubljana castle. The open-air cinema setup in Ljubljana is already traditional and screens the most acclaimed films of the past seasons. Movies like Le piel que habitoby P. Almodóvar and To Rome with Loveby W. Allenare a must see. If you like the movies that are hard to understand then go forPolanski´sCarnage.

  1. The movie projectionsstart at 9.30 pmand finish depending on the duration of the movie.
  2. Entrance fee is4-5€, depends on the movie.
  3. While using a cablecar (3€) that gets you to Ljubljana castle don´t forget to observe the night panorama of our capital.
  4. You can buy the tickets here or directly at the castle. I advice you to buy them at least 1 day in advance.

Have a wonderful open-air summer!
