Back to the cinema!

We don’t know about you, but watching films on your laptop is okay, but nothing beats a big film screen, a great soundsystem and a comfy cinema chair. Luckily cinemas can open their doors again and hopefully the feeling stays the same, even with all the new regulations. SG provides you with a couple of viewing tips in Rotterdam cinemas.

As a lot of countries still are in lockdown, most new releases are postponed or made viewable directly via online streaming. Therefor cinemas in Rotterdam offer you a combination of old and new films the first couple of weeks. We provide you 5 tips:

Parasite

This is your last chance to watch the enormous Oscar winner 2020 on the big screen. What starts out as a dark comedy on which a poor family infiltrates into a rich family, changes gradually into a nerve twisting thriller with an unexpected ending. This film is the first foreign film to also win the Oscar for best film.

Queen & Slim

The first date of Queen and Slim end in a run for the police after an accidental shoting of a white police officer. Like a modern Bonnie & Clyde they drive across America helped out along the way by colorful strangers and discovering their love for each other.

Honey Boy

Do the Right Thing

Barack and Michelle Obama went to see this film during their very first date in 1989. This classic by Spike Lee shows you racial tensions on one of the hottest days between Italian – & African American citizens of Brooklyn. Unfortunately, the film is still strangely actual in modern day America.
