The return of summer to Strasbourg rhymes with that of open-air cinemas. A tradition always appreciated by Strasbourg residents, it allows you to see great classics of cinema again, taking advantage of the mild summer nights, all to music. As a bonus, there will be food-trucks and something to quench your thirst. This year, the Films du Spectrum association is joining forces with the Sp3ak3r media for a series of 7 films broadcast free of charge in Strasbourg’s parks and lakes.
Last year Spectrum Films – the association behind the famous Fantastic Film Festival – teamed up with the brand new Phare Citadelle for a series of screenings. Films du Specter is working with Sp3ak3r media this year.

To enhance the pleasure of watching films in the open air, Films du Specter and Sp3ak3r will also be offering entertainment from 6 p.m., including DJ sets to get the evening off to a good start. Food trucks and a refreshment bar will be on site, to combine business with pleasure. Don’t forget your plaids, folding chairs and other blankets, to spend the cosiest of evenings! And, if ever, a little citronella or mosquito repellent, it never hurts.
It’s always a pleasure to see open-air cinemas again. Like a taste of summer spreading through Strasbourg. The opportunity, with family or friends, to spend a nice evening, wrapped up in a big plaid. Finally, do we need something more to be happy?
