Cinema evening at the king’s hut (Koenigshuette) – a review

it says: central light games - cinema world - 'Herzberg at the Harz mountains' presents: 

On Friday evening, September 24, 2021, there was a movie night at the Koenigshuette (king’s hut) in Bad Lauterberg. It was planned as an open-air event, but in view of the weather forecast it was moved to the fettling shop, a section in the foundry building. Already in the morning, the set-up took place, ‘Kinowelt Herzberg’ (cinema world of Herzberg) brought the equipment for the cinema evening and chairs were set up. Before the film 'the pretty big dream' startet, there was at 7:30 p.m. a short  guided tour - owed to the late hour, which makes some stumbling blocks of the premises invisible. For the film itself, the 3G rules applied, even if it was no longer mandatory at this point due to the Corona location, but safety first. The ladies from the sewing group called ‘Naehtreff’ supplied the visitors with drinks - including wine and sparkling wine, and also with pretzels and - as befits a cinema evening - popcorn to satisfy the small appetite.
