Exciting lineup: Here are the movies for this year’s summer cinema

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

Last year’s summer cinema at  CW Obels Plads was nothing short of a success.

There’s something special about sitting outdoors, under the summer sun, watching movies with a whole lot of other people.

Luckily, the success is being repeated this year, and once again, it’s completely free.

And this time, with an even more exciting lineup than last year… if you ask us.

At the top, you’ll find the Danish classic “Den Eneste Ene,” yes, the one with Sidse Babett Knudsen and Niels Olsen, who are still waiting for their first Oscar statuette.

If you haven’t seen the film from 1999, now is the time to do it. And if you have seen it, you know that it can be watched again and again and again.

Oscar winner and lots of drinking

Also on the movie poster is “La La Land,” which actually scored a total of 14 Oscar nominations in 2017 and won 6 of them.

The musical “La La Land” follows the dreamy jazz pianist, Sebastian, and the aspiring actress, Mia, in Los Angeles, and is naturally a must-see.

The same goes for the Danish film “Another Round” from 2020, which made it to the list of Danish films that are definitely worth watching.

Here, Mads Mikkelsen and his friends drink themselves (almost?) to death, and we see how life spins like a roller coaster for them all before it all ends badly.

A welcome reunion

Another film where things go quite wrong, quite often, is “Terkel in Trouble” from 2004, which we didn’t actually know was still allowed to be shown.

“Terkel in Trouble” offends just about everyone and everything in the hour and a half it lasts – and you shouldn’t be afraid of blood, bad language, or murder if you want to see it through.

If you’re looking for a slightly more family-friendly movie, you can fortunately experience both “Asterix og Briterne” from 1986 and “Far til Fire og Vikingerne” from 2020.

For the youngest in the family, there’s a chance to (re)watch the abovementioned family films.

“Asterix og Briterne” will be shown already at 10 am, so you don’t have to worry about late bedtimes.

The dates and times for the summer cinema are being announced gradually, and only three have been confirmed so far.

Among others, “Den Eneste Ene,” which currently has nearly 2,000 interested people on Facebook.

These films have been announced:

  • Den Eneste Ene: Thursday, June 27, at 8 pm
  • La La Land: Wednesday, July 3, at 8 pm
  • Asterix og Briterne: Saturday, July 6, at 10 am
