Sunset Cinema
logistics. The projection building takes the
form of the light beam as a leading principle.
The floor thus becomes a slope that serves as
the basis for the seating. The wall onto which
the films are projected forms the screen. This
wall is an existing wall and part of the
neighbouring building. Between the projection
building and the screen a space is left open;
also people outside the building can follow the
screening without necessarily being inside. The
box with logistics offers space for bar,
storage and meeting place. Sunset Cinema will is
run by the Luxemburg based film club Filmreakter.
The film program starts from sunset onwards;
hence its name.
When there is no screening, Sunset Cinema will
create - by it presence - an urban space
‘infested with promise and expectation’. The
square around Sunset Cinema allows the already
existing space to come alive, as it can
function as an open-air terrace.

Filmreakter will show new and old material from
their members, Open Screen programs and invites
different generations of Luxemburg filmmakers
 
164
to program an evening. Next to that we
invited several initiatives outside Luxembourg
to program a night. Sunset Cinema not only
wants to generate a platform for producers
from Luxemburg, it also wants be an
activator for exchange, a possibility to
contribute, make, and show.
