The Rotterdamse Pleinbios (outdoor cinema) – known for its summer film evenings in Museumpark – goes on an adventure several times a year. Films in exciting places, where the location and programme reinforce one another. It’s called ‘Pleinbios Presenteert’ (Pleinbios Presents). During Pleinbios Presenteert at the Rotterdamse Dakendagen (Rotterdam Rooftop Days), we linked the roof of the Q-Park Bijenkorf parking garage to the icy classic Taxi Driver.

About the film – Taxi Driver (1976)

On every street in every city, there’s a nobody who dreams of being a somebody. A mentally unstable Vietnam War veteran works as a night-time taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge for violent action, attempting to save a preadolescent prostitute in the process.

Practical info + snacks and drinks

Pleinbios will provide chairs and blankets. Because we’re on top of a parking garage, you can park your car nearby. Picnic baskets and pillows are very welcome. Soft drinks and popcorn are available, but you are also allowed to bring your favourite bag of crisps and a bottle of something or other. Of course, you can also come by bike – even better! There are bicycle parking facilities downstairs. Take the lift from the pedestrian entrance of the parking garage.
