Summer nights offer many pleasures, but those in Ljubljana present the opportunity to indulge in one that’s rather special – watching movies in the open air, in the courtyard of a castle, with a bar serving drinks and a great view of the city at the end. 

It’s that time when Kinodvor takes over the main attraction after the sun goes down, with screenings of some the best art movies of the past year, plus some never seen before in the country. All films start at 21:30 and are shown in their original language with English subtitles, unless the original language is English, in which Slovenian is used for the subs (although note that movies like The Square, which are predominantly in English but have sections in other languages, are likely to be fully subbed in Slovene.)

In previous years rainy nights meant the screenings were moved to Kinodvor, but renovation work at the cinema in the coming month means this will not be possible, and thus bad weather will simply mean a cancelation, to be announced at and by 19:00 on the day of the scheduled screening.

Tickets are 4.5 euros for regular screenings, 5.5 for premieres and “special projections”. You can buy tickets at the Castle and Kinodvor, at (Petrol, Kompass, etc), or online from the Castle here, although note the website is in Slovene and you’ll need to scroll down to find the night you want. Tickets went on sale June 13, so maybe start planning ahead.
