The movie festival Sotto le stelle del Cinema is back with its 35th edition! From the 21st June to the 14th August, prepare to be delighted by 52 evenings featuring the greatest masterpieces of classic, modern and experimental cinema, surrounded by the enchanting setting of Piazza Maggiore, sitting before one of Europe’s largest screens.
Again this year, the festival is “twofold” thanks to the addition of the big screen of the LunettArena, set amidst the green scenery of the Lunetta Gamberini gardens, coming with the same programme as Piazza Maggiore.
The admission to the free shows is subject to prior online reservation as far as the majority of the available seats is concerned. The Cineteca website allows for a maximum of 4 free seats per night to be reserved. The online reservation system will be updated daily, so that 8 consecutive shows will be made available each time.
A limited quota of seats will be available for direct sale at the offices of Bologna Welcome, under the Voltone di Palazzo del Podestà (opening times mon-sat 9-18:30, sun 10-16:30). All reservations can be cancelled by the user. However, failures to cancel the reservation or to show up at the scheduled time and place for 3 consecutive times will result in the cancellation of all current reservations and in the impossibility of participating to other shows during the festival.
Participants are required to take their assigned seats at the beformentioned venues before 21:15, and must wear an appropriate face mask at all times.
