Watching a classic film in the open air on a balmy summer evening is one of the underrated joys of summer.
There are plenty of opportunities to watch cinema under the stars this summer.
For starters, the Cinémathèque hosts its City Open Air Cinema With Orange programmes at the Palais and at the Capucins courtyard.
The Palais programme includes a couple of musicals with broad appeal--“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, which may attract some fans dressed as their favourite character.
Two classics of twentieth century cinema are also on the bill--Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo”, consistently voted one of the best films of all time, and a newly restored print of Carol Reed’s widely acclaimed “The Third Man”, screened to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the birth of Orson Welles.
Meanwhile, the CNA in Dudelange is screening two modern films this weekend--super hero blockbuster “Ant-Man” and Woody Allen’s latest “Irrational Man”.
