The Film showing at Götaplatsen in Gothenburg is one of the highlights of Christmas in the city. The show starts at 4:30 p.m until as late as 9:00 p.m. I saw the premiere showing right after the lighting of Gothenburg Christmas lights on 7 December. The film show will end on 31 December. It’s a tradition of the city to display epic movies during holiday season each year.
It’s quite relaxing to stop by and watch the show after shopping. Sipping a hot choco drink (to go) while standing in the cold watching a show is just one way to relieve holiday stress. It’s like a drive-in movie though you don’t sit in the car but stand as many hours as as you can.
