The City of Luxembourg is bringing back its drive-in cinema at Champ des Glacis. With a giant mobile screen, the Glacis car park will be transformed into a vast, open-air cinema. The drive-in is a wonderfully retro way of getting the big screen experience. This type of theatre first appeared in the United States back in the 1930s, and reached peak popularity in the 1950s and 1960s. At the "Kino um Glacis", you can watch movies from the comfort of your own car or the open-air lounge area with seating for groups of up to four people. Enjoy the magic of the silver screen under a moonlit sky, with a variety of recent blockbusters and classic films.
