The Monaco Open Air Cinema 2024

If you're seeking a truly wonderful experience in the Principality of Monaco, we recommend spending part of an evening watching a movie under the stars at the Monaco Open Air Cinema.

We first wrote about this unique venue a decade ago, but it’s always worth revisiting as it is quite the experience. And as of June 15, it reopens to the public for the height of the summer season.

Situated next to the architecturally stunning Oceanography Museum and just a few minutes' walk from the Prince’s Palace, the Monaco Open Air Cinema offers a picturesque setting by the Mediterranean Sea. Throughout the season, you can enjoy a variety of movies, from new releases to vintage classics.

Seating options cater to different comfort levels and budgets, ranging from standard outdoor chairs to more lounge-like areas. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis to ensure fairness. Refreshments are available for purchase as well.

The cinema opens at 8:45 pm, with the evening's events starting at 9:30 pm and the movie commencing at 10:00 pm. It's advisable to arrive early, as tickets cannot be purchased online. This traditional approach to cinema-going adds to the charm and memorability of the experience.

A lesser-known fact is that the fortress wall behind the screen is part of the Monaco prison, though there are few windows in the area near the top of the wall.

For a memorable movie-watching experience, spend an evening at the Monaco Open Air Cinema.
