watch a movie at these amazing open air cinemas

What’s more fun and romantic than hiding under a warm blanket on an uncomfortable beach chair while watching a cool movie on a huge white canvas with hundreds of others? Team Yourlbb loves good movies, that’s why we have selected our favourite ones in this Movie Guide. But the thing we love the most is watching a movie in the open air. Nice with friends and the perfect occasion to snuggle next to your lover or date ;-) That’s why we put the nicest open air cinemas in Amsterdam in one list where you can watch a movie this summer. Have fun!
