True silver-screen experiences over the roofs of Frankfurt: From 21 to 23 July, OpernTurm morphed into an open-air cinema in the framework of the Highrise Cinema series – and entranced viewers with no less than three films.
A balmy summer night with Holly Golightly on the OpernTurm roof terrace? Yes, please! Against the spectacular backdrop of Frankfurt’s night-time skyline and with snacks and drinks from the bar as well as French crêpes and galettes courtesy of Chez Vivi in Frankfurt, OpernTurm was one of the four locations where this year’s edition of the Highrise Cinema series was screened – presenting films on the rooftops of selected skyscrapers in the city.
So it was that OpernTurm opened the roof terrace on the sixth floor of the podium to the general public to enjoy three nights of outdoor cinema. Things kicked off on the Thursday with Sönke Wortmann’s movie “Contra”, which was released in the autumn of 2021. On Friday, the years were rolled back to 1961: for Blake Edward’s masterpiece “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, featuring cinema icon Audrey Hepburn. And the trio was completed on the Saturday by director Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” with its all-star cast – telling the story of the fashion dynasty.
There were only a limited number of seats, and thus all three film events sold out super-swiftly, and the immense enthusiasm of the viewers was tangible both on the night and on social media. Our thanks go to “Lichter Filmfest und Freiluftkino Frankfurt” for the superb organization of three unforgettable evenings.
