Dear friends of the open-air cinema Hasenheide, our season starts on 25 May 2022.
We show all films in the early evening and evening programme in the original with subtitles (OmU). For some German films we have English subtitles (OmeU). The children's programme is always in German.
Until the end of September, we are planning a daily children's and family programme starting at around 4:30 pm - with children's theatre performances as an alternative on Sundays. This summer, we want to contribute a little to offering children on the run - regardless of their origin - a nice open-air cinema experience. In the first four weeks of the programme - always on Mondays and Wednesdays - we plan to show either a children's film in Ukrainian or a dialogue-free film that all children can understand. For these screenings we always keep a contingent for war refugees. Admission is always free for these children.
In our early evening and evening programme, the highlights of the last indoor season are also accompanied by other works. We show either other films by the actors and actresses or the director. Sometimes themes are highlighted in a different context.
For example, Lady Gaga makes her double appearance on 4 June with A Star is Born and House of Gucci. Then on 7 June we pay tribute to Leonard Cohen with Marianne and Leonard: Words of Love and Death of a Ladies Man - find the connection between these two films yourself. On 2 June, 55 years ago, student Benno Ohnesorg was killed by a police bullet in Krummen Straße in Berlin Charlottenburg. With the film Wer wenn nicht wir by Andres Veiel, we want to remember that the death of Benno Ohnesorg influenced countless people of his generation - Thursday, 2 June at 6:30 pm.
But cinema should also entertain and be fun in summer temperatures. To this end, we also reach into the shelves and show Dirty Dancing from 1988 on Whit Sunday. Even further back, to France in 1981, we go on 19 June with the restored and now also digitised version of La Boum - Die Fete.
Out to the cinema! And not only at night, but - with Berlin's only daylight open-air stage - also during the day. Daily for children in the afternoon and for cineastes - and those who have always wanted to be - in the evening.
We are looking forward to the new season and to you and hope for many beautiful summer days and balmy summer nights in Berlin's cosiest open-air cinema!
