Language information

In the listing for every film we include the language in which the film is spoken. Check the programme. Subtitles are usually in Dutch, but there are exceptions.


You can buy your tickets online (starting in July), via iDeal or by creditcard. We also sell tickets at the box office in the Museumpark. The Pleinbioscoop is almost never sold out (since it’s so big), so it’s not really necessary to book in advance. However, with an e-ticket you do not have to stand in line for the box office.

A regular ticket costs 5,- euros. We accept cash and debit cards (Maestro), no credit cards. Tickets purchased online may be presented on a recent smart phone with high brightness setting.

Where do I sit?

At the Pleinbioscoop you rent (cost: 1,- euro per chair) or bring a chair. You can place it anywhere you want on the terrain. There are always enough chairs available for rent.

At what time do I have to be there?

The programme (including short film and intros) will start around 9.15 pm. This differs a bit per night, depending on the time of sunset. The Pleinbioscoop opens at 8 pm.
