If it wasn't enough with the Culture Festival in Stockholm this week... there is another festival going on as well. This one is more cinematic in nature. The Stockholm Film Festival takes place every November in the city, but one week every summer the festival shows excellent movies outdoors. Starting tonight (Wednesday, August 17th) they will be showing a different movie each evening (until Sunday) in Rålambshovsparken, located on the island of Kungsholmen. It is free of charge and the movies start (rain or shine) at 8:30pm though people start arriving already around 6pm with picnic baskets in hand. Some great movies will be shown, including Black Swan and the Buena Vista Social Club. Click here for their program.
To get to the park from the Rival Hotel... take the subway from Slussen, green line northbound to Fridhemsplan. From there it is a short walk south to the water and the park.
