Tickets for Pleinbioscoop meets LantarenVenster

It is, of course, great that we are allowed to watch film during this corona crisis! But this means that some things are slightly different from what you are used to at Pleinbioscoop. For example, Pleinbioscoop meets LantarenVenster is only accessible with valid tickets that you have purchased online in advance.

The price of a movie ticket is slightly higher than you are used to from us. That’s because your price includes a seat, use of headphones and service charges.

Other questions

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

You may not bring your own food and drinks this year. You can order snacks and drinks directly with your tickets. Then your refreshments are ready when you arrive at the site. That’s a nice start of your evening, it saves lines at the bar and you have fewer contact moments with our crew, which is safer. It is possible to order more snacks and drinks during the film, you can only pay by PIN (preferably wireless)

Do I have to bring a chair or can I rent a chair?

During this special edition of the Pleinbioscoop, your ticket includes a seat. The chairs are ready for you on the site with a distance of 1.5m between them. All you have to do is settle down at your favorite spot. Do you want to make it extra comfortable (and warm)? Then bring your own blanket and pillow!

Can we sit together if we are one household?

We do not know whether you’re a household, or not. That is why the same house rule applies to everyone during the Pleinbioscoop: all keep 1.5 meters apart. It is therefore not allowed to move chairs. Because we organize this event during the corona crisis, we are bound by several extra rules and measures so that it is safest for everyone. If you want to snuggle with someone from within your household, you can book tickets for a seat on the Hotel New York terrace, where you can share one table. You can find those tickets in the webshop as well.

Are there toilets available?

Before you go to the Pleinbioscoop, go to the toilet. But in case you have to go to the toilet during the movie, we have a few toilets on site.

Do we need headphones?

At Pleinbioscoop meets LantarenVenster, we watch the movies with wireless headphones. You will receive one at the entrance and return it afterwards at the exit. We will clean these headphones thoroughly.

What time is the Pleinbioscoop meets LantarenVenster open?

The doors of the Pleinbioscoop open at 8.30 pm. For everyone’s safety, we want to avoid as many queues as possible at the entrance. That is why we ask you to arrive on time, so you can immediately choose the most perfect seat. The film program starts between 21.30 and 21.45, view the exact starting time of your film in the program.

Will the Pleinbioscoop continue when it rains?

We always screen films, also when it rains. We only cancel when we are dealing with a dangerous situation because of heavy weather. If this is the case, we announce the cancellation as soon as possible on our social media channels and website. Also, we’ll send you an e-mail which might end up in your spam folder, so please check that folder as well before going to Pleinbioscoop!

When it rains, there will be no service at the Hotel New York terrace. In that case, you can get your drinks and snacks at the Pleinbioscoop bar and spend your €15 credits there as well.

Are my tickets refundable when the weather is bad?
