“There are definitely a few delicacies to be seen again. We make sure that there is something for everyone,” says cinema boss Stefan Brandmayer. The City Kino is organizing the summer cinema in Steyr for the tenth time. On balmy summer nights, viewers of all ages can enjoy films under the stars.
Of course, physical well-being is taken care of, the buffet with popcorn and nachos is also open for the open-air cinema. In addition to the normal snacks, Spritzer and Aperol are offered. In the event of bad weather, the performances are moved inside the cinema, but until now all screenings have taken place outdoors.
“We only move to a hall when it rains or storms. Many of the guests are well prepared and take blankets with them in case it gets cold,” explains the organizer.
The eighth part of the Eberhofer series is currently running. “Gugelhupfgeschwader” is the name of the new episode. The crime comedy can still be seen today, Saturday, and tomorrow, Sunday, at 9 p.m. in the inner courtyard of the Steyrer City cinema. “We’re expecting a lot of guests, especially at ‘Gugelhupfgeschwader’,” says Brandmayer.
On Wednesday, August 10th, the Winnetou series will be continued with part 3 at the summer cinema. “Many parents have already taken their children to the first parts of the classic to show the little ones what they used to watch,” says Brandmayer.
Actress Nina Hartmann will be visiting the City Kino next Sunday, August 14th to come to the screening of her new romantic comedy “Match me if you can” at the summer cinema.
Afterwards, Lamberg Castle forms the backdrop for two cinema previews. “Märzengrund” will be broadcast for the first time in the Schlossgraben on Tuesday, August 16th. The drama is about the teenager Elias, who wants to escape the Tyrolean Zillertal. Felix Mitterer wrote the play of the same name, which served as the template for the Austrian film.
The “Song of the Crayfish” is the second and last performance that will be shown on Thursday, August 18th at Lamberg Castle. The only American film in the repertoire based on the book by Delia Owens. “A few regular guests are already waiting for the two previews,” says Brandmayer. “Seeing these films in the moat is going to be a highlight of the summer.”
