Ticket Info

Ticket sales for all tickets of the Berlinale Summer Special started on June 3 at 10 am. You can purchase tickets via the websites of the respective open-air cinemas. The festival map provides a complete overview of the venues and the corresponding links to their websites.

Clicking on the ticket buttons in the programme takes you directly to the box offices of the respective cinemas. There you can also find information about ticket prices – which are between 10 and 15 Euros each, depending on the venue and the type of event – and possible discounts. Tickets for all Generation Kplus screenings in the Freiluftkino Hasenheide are 5 Euros.
Every ticket is personalised and you may only sit in the seat allocated to you on your ticket. In most venues, up to two people can sit next to each other.

The websites of the open-air cinemas also contain information about the respective payment options and cancellation policies. Some cinemas are also providing an on-site box office where you can purchase any remaining tickets on the day. Please contact the cinemas about this directly. There will be no on-site box offices at the Museum Island or Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) open-air cinemas.
Drinks, snacks and, where available, small meals can be purchased at all venues.

Information about inclusion at the Berlinale Summer Special can be found at berlinale/inclusion.

Partner Cinemas and Hygiene Policy

After a long period of uncertainty, the Berlinale and its partner cinemas are delighted to be able to invite you to the Summer Special from June 9 to 20.

The Berlinale flies the flag for vibrant cinema culture and is part of the lively Berlin cinema scene – which is emphasised by the fact that the Summer Special has its locations all over the city. To highlight the characteristics of the 16 participating open-air cinemas and enable audiences to have the closest possible contact with “their” venues, the Summer Special is being organised in a more decentralised way than a “normal” Berlinale.

However, because the Summer Special is going ahead as part of a pilot scheme by the Berlin Senate Chancellery, the hygiene measures are an exception to this rule.

Safeguarding the health and safety of our visitors is of paramount importance. Therefore, to participate in the Summer Special events, all visitors must fully comply with the Berlinale’s protection and hygiene policy, which applies to all venues. The policy contains comprehensive information about the mandatory SARS-CoV-2 tests for visitors, the required data collection and the rules of conduct at the venues.
