Cinema Under The Stars: in Bologna, the big screen in Piazza Maggiore

It’s almost time for the kick-off of the 53 evenings of Cinema Under The Stars, the marvelous initiative which for years has enchanted movie buffs and curious people in general, by entertaining them in Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, in front of the splendid Basilica of San Petronio.

From 19 June to 14 August, cult movies and new releases will excite both Bologna’s residents and tourists in one of the most evocative settings of the Italian cultural heritage, giving the city one of the most awaited rituals of the year.

Here’s the complete program.

Cinema under the stars: where to park in Bologna?

The Cinema Under The Stars initiative represents a fantastic opportunity for cinema lovers and for anyone wishing to enjoy a special evening outdoors, immersed in cinematic art.

However, the film programming times limit travel by train, forcing viewers to move with their own vehicle and therefore to proceed with one of the activities most hated by anyone traveling to the city for a few days: finding a parking space in Bologna!

Moreover, in the Emilian capital the road system is particularly limited: the most central areas are difficult to reach by car and avoiding the dreaded Restricted Traffic Zone is much more complex than it seems.

However, the Basilica of San Petronio and, consequently, the Cinema Under The Stars initiative are located in the historic center: how can you then park near places of interest without incurring fines and unrest of any kind?

Garage Excelsior is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to enjoy a quiet evening in the center of Bologna, forgetting any worries.

Our car park is in fact located in front of Bologna Central Station, a stone’s throw from the center and just outside the Restricted Traffic Zone. The car park is spread over two floors and is constantly under video surveillance and guarded.

Don’t miss the thrills of the Cinema Under The Stars in one of the most evocative settings in Italy just for fear of not finding a parking space capable of responding to your needs: Garage Excelsior is the perfect car park in the center of Bologna, to fully enjoy great cinema without any worries.
