Stockholm Internatinonal Film Festival is arranging a Winter Cinema at an ice screen in Kungsträdgården, during the weekend November 9-10. The actress Rosanna Arquette opens the Winter Cinema, November 9th at 4:00 pm, as the sun sets over Stockholm. The event is free with the purpose of screening quality cinema to the wider audience. The ice is harvested from Torneälven in Jukkasjärvi and weighs 6 tons. 


– Ten years ago, we created an unforgettable moment for the Stockholmers when Susan Sarandon visited the festival and opened the world’s first ice screen at our 20th Anniversary. This year, we treat everyone on a sparkling cinematic experience, and my only worry is that the ice screen will melt because of all cinema-love that will be spread by the audience in Kungsträdgården, says Git Scheynius, Festival Director at Stockholm Film Festival.


November 9-10 the fountain in Kungsträdgården will transform into a movie theatre with lined up benches that the public can enjoy the screenings on. The films that will be screened is After Hours (1985) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). The audience is encouraged to bring warm clothes and blankets to sit on.

The 6 000 tons heavy blocks of ice have been transported 1227 kilometers, from Tornälven in Jukkasjärvi. The construction of the ice screen starts November 9th, 5:00 am.
