Lasnamäe to Get Drive-In for the Summer, Rooftop Cinema Offering 3 American Classics
Tallinn City Government has greenlighted a drive-in movie theater in the parking lot of Lasnamäe Centrum, a shopping area in outer Tallinn.
The outdoor cinema will screen films from June 12 to September 7. These being the white nights, the screening are late - the opening on June 12 starts at 23:00 and will last until 2:00 in the morning.
Showings will be on Fridays and weekend days throughout the summer. All movies will be subtitled, not overdubbed. At least one Russian-language film will be shown each week, Lasnamäe being, after all, a majority Russian-speaking district.
The cinema will have food and drink servers on roller skates. The audio will be streamed to an FM frequency on car radios.
Viru Keskus Katusekino
The rooftop cinema at the city center mall is also well into its season. Kultuur.err.ee recommends three American classics: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," (June 8), "12 Angry Men" and "El Mariachi" (June 20).
Other, newer fare in the lineup includes "Samsara" (June 9), the Estonian "Crosswinds," and "La Grande Bellezza."
