Netflix, Amazon and streaming are all the rage, but “real” cinema is different. So quite often on Wednesday evening I head off to the “Zeughaus am Turm” in Radstadt and treat myself to a good film, as “big pictures” are on the programme.
The “Cinema in the Tower“ received an additional boost a few years ago with the installation of an open-air cinema in the inner courtyard of the old County Court during the months of July and August. I was able to experience for myself many times that open-air cinema has lost nothing of its fascination. – assuming the weather co-operates.
It doesn’t always have to be an Oscar
An absolute MUST for cinema goers is the Radstadt Film Festival with its great programme which takes place annually in November. Themes such as traditions, generations living together, but also flight and migration are touched upon and presented to the audience. The wide selection of national and international films is a guarantee for varied and cosmopolitan cinema entertainment. In addition there are a number of Salzburg premieres and even an Austrian premiere featuring on the festival programme. A number of film-makers are also on hand this year too, to present their films and to talk about their work, which enriches the festival immensely.
