Open Air, part 2

The venues of FILMFEST MÜNCHEN POP-UP: Kino am Olympiasee

Open Air, part 2

The wonderfully located open air cinema in the middle of Olympiapark

FILMFEST MÜNCHEN POP-UP would not be possible without the partners who have made their wonderful outdoor cinemas available. We are delighted that PopUp Autokino München and Kino am Olympiasee have welcomed us and that together we have been able to get this brand-new project off the ground.


It’s impossible to imagine summer in Munich without Kino am Olympiasee, the open-air film series on the Olympic Lake. Its unique location in the middle of the Olympic Park makes it the perfect place to spend a balmy summer night. Movies and live events are put on there each year from May to September. The team, by the way, is very committed to protecting the environment: it uses sustainable products and the events are completely climate-neutral thanks to a carbon offset. In addition, Kino am Olympiasee supports KulturRaum München e.V., a nonprofit organization that makes it possible for disadvantaged Munich residents and asylum-seekers to attend cultural events.


Patrick Diesing and Felix Lechner are part of the Kino am Olympiasee team


Patrick Diesing, one of the managers of Kino am Olympiasee, has taken the time to answer five questions and describe the project:


  1. What’s special to you about open-air cinema?

PD: Kino am Olympiasee in the world-famous Olympic Park is the most beautiful place to spend a magical evening under the starry sky.


  1. How did the idea for Kino am Olympiasee come about?

PD: At Münchner Stadtmedien GmbH, we’ve been organizing events for 25 years, and open-air has always been a focus.


  1. How often do you check the weather app when you run an outdoor cinema?

PD: At least once an hour.


  1. What are you most looking forward to in working with us?

PD: Two years ago, we screened the first season of SERVUS BABY, because we love the show. We are looking forward to seeing Natalie, Felix, and the whole cast and crew again.


  1. What snack can’t you do without at the movies?

PD: Our bowls are simply delicious.


We agree! And if you like to see celebrities in person, you should not miss the huge world premiere of the second season of SERVUS BABY on August 19. So lean back in your deck chair, bowl in hand, and enjoy. Details about the event can all be found here!
