Following the success of past editions, City Open Air Cinema, presented by the Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg, will return to Luxembourg City from Friday 22 to Saturday 30 July 2022.
Public screenings will be held daily at 21:30 on the forecourt of the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg-Ville. Films will be projected on a giant screen (14x18 metres), with more than 500 seats available each evening.
This year's programme once again offers a mix of classic and contemporary films, as well as cult films. A screening of Death on the Nile will kick off the programme on Friday 22 July 2022. After following the latest Hercule Poirot mystery, spectators will have the opportunity to watch Audrey Hepburn in the role of eccentric society girl Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's (23 July) and Jacques Tati as an awkward holidaymaker in Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (24 July). Next on the programme will be screenings of Alfred Hitchcock's suspense thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much (25 July) and the Parisian romantic comedy Amélie (26 July).
There will also be the chance to watch A Fistful of Dollars (27 July), Sergio Leone's cult spaghetti western which brings together Clint Eastwood and the haunting music of Ennio Morricone on the big screen, as well as Charlie Chaplin's 1928 silent film The Circus (28 July). Last but not least, screenings of Steven Spielberg's dazzling West Side Story (29 July) and Disney's Encanto (30 July) will round off the programme.
A brief introduction will be provided before each screening. Spectators will also have the opportunity to have drinks or snacks on site. Screenings will go ahead even in the case of rain.
All screenings are free and open to the public. They take place on a first come, first served basis; reservations are not possible.
