One of the giant districts of the capital also has an open-air cinema, Pagony. In the 11th district, lying in the grass at the former children’s pool of Gellert Bath, you can watch the films starting at around 9 o’clock in the evening – for free. Don’t really expect party here, because a regulation limits the opening hours of the place, but it doesn’t affect the operation of the cinema. This Thursday, Lipstick, airport etc. was presented.
Budapest Rooftop Cinema
Perhaps this is the best-known open-air cinema, which is located on Corvinteto. For three years, you can sit under the stars at Blaha Square to eat popcorn while relieving real classics in return for the HUF 600 supporters ticket. Screenings start at dusk, but they’re canceled in bad weather. It’s possible to buy VIP tickets, by which you can watch the films 4 meters higher. Yesterday, The Dark Knight was presented in the cinema.

Fellini Romai Kulturbisztro
Instead of garden movie, a riverside movie is waiting for you with deckchairs, River Danube, sunset, rather with rarities than audience films; even in daylight or in complete darkness. In the Fellini Romai Kulturbisztro, you can watch movies for free under the Obuda summer program series, but due to the proximity of the river, it doesn’t hurt to prepare for a possible war against mosquitos.
