In the midst of studying for finals this weekend, take a break and enjoy one of the delights of warm spring and summer evenings in Berlin: the Freiluftkinos, or open-air cinemas. There are Freiluftkinos dotted in parks around the city, with one in almost every district. Two of the most popular ones on our side of town are the Freiluftkino Kreuzberg at the Kunstquartier Bethanien and the Freiluftkino Friedrichshain in Volkspark Friedrichshain. Both Freiluftkinos will be beginning with nightly screenings this week.
Check here for the program for the cinema in Kreuzberg and here for the cinema in Friedrichshain. Tickets cost 7 EUR. And don’t forget to check if the screening is in English (this will often be noted in the program as “engl.m.dt.Ut” or “OmU”, or in German as “dt.m.engl.Ut”!
