Outdoor movies at Düsseldorf Airport

DUS Airport Cinema one

Düsseldorf Airport has brought back its popular outdoor movie program.

Offered weekends throughout July, “OpenAirport Cinema” has seats for about 500 people and is showing both blockbusters such as “Tomorrowland” with George Clooney to classics, such as “Pulp fiction.”

A giant screen is set up on the outdoor observation terrace and everyone gets wireless headphones so they can hear the dialog and the music.

Outdoor movies – at the airport.

The amenities at Singapore’s Changi Airport, Hong Kong International Airport and the Incheon International Airport in Seoul include movie theaters.

But those are indoor movie theaters.

In what we hope will be a regular feature, last weekend Germany’s Düsseldorf International (which recently adopted a parking robot) offered visitors a chance to see an outdoor movie at the airport.

DUS MOVIE

The one-night cinema had seats for over 700 people and was set up on the airport’s outdoor observation deck.

On Saturday night the German comedy “Nicht mein Tag” was shown. On Sunday, it was James Bond in “Skyfall”.

Moviegoers had perfect outdoor moving-watching weather and, as a bonus, could see airplanes landing and taking off just behind the screen.

And, to make sure everyone could hear the soundtrack, wireless headphones were passed out.
