Late Friday evening film screenings at De Uitkijk

The oldest Dutch filmtheater De Uitkijk is starting late Friday evening screenings of films in English or with English subtitles.

"There was not a possibility to see or do anything special on Friday night, all the theatres are screening the same movies as any regular day. I wanted to offer something special for those who want their weekend to kick off in style," explains their programmer Onne Bakker.

This is a good opportunity to start the weekend before going out clubbing or simply enjoy a relaxed late evening; the bar will be working before and during screenings so it is possible to get a drink at the same time. Those sitting on a balcony can even do it while watching!

De Uitkijk stands out not only due to its historical and stylish building, but also due to the fact that it is a non-commercial cinema. For the last four years it has been run by students, who are taking care of everything including the film programme and the bar.

Starting on May 6 (10.45pm) and on a weekly basis, the cinema will present cult, camp and classical films. The first ones are the science-fiction movie "Alien" (Ridley Scott, 1979) on May 6 and the horror film "Psycho" (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960) on May 13.

The programme for May 20 is yet unknown, but on May 27 the cinema will show "Any Way The Wind Blows" (Tom Barman, 2003).
