Thursday Doors, August 3, 2017

In need of a new door? How about a cinema under the stars with the view?

Today’s edition has two parts.

Soon after I started posting Thursday Doors, father suggested that if I wanted doors I could go in search of a door-selling shop. I liked the idea but I needed two years or so to find not one but two. One allows dogs in, the other has more doors.

The second part covers the unique and matching doors of the Cinema under the Stars in Piran which is operated by the local priest (well, I’m not an expert, I bet there is a more suitable title for him, vicar?) on the church grounds. Not only are there stars above and the breeze that slightly moves the screen, there is lovely grass under your feet, the view of the sea to the right, the church spire with Archangel Michel directly above the screen with bells tolling for additional soundtrack, and when the film ends, everybody packs a few chairs and helps empty the lawn again. It’s free. And it comes with a matching door set.

Church grounds or not, yesterday the film on display was “Liberation Day”, a “documentary musical” about the first foreign band ever to play North Korea. The band is Laibach, which means “Ljubljana” in German, they are Slovenian, highly symbolic (not to say that they suck) and come with a variety of provocative messages, visuals and covers, among them several tunes from “The Sound of Music”, “Final Countdown” and “Across the Universe”. The fact that they were even allowed to enter the country is unbelievable already.

Happy Thurdsay and enjoy life!

    The open-air cinema seems like a wonderful way to spend a nice summer evening, especially in that setting.

    Definitely doors already in use are better than new doors without much variation. Love the gate and metal cross.
    Your amore should be given a shiny gold star for his portrayal of a man in search of a unique door.

    1. True, Jan, but in this case it was hardly thrilling. Good that I don’t need a new door.


  4. I love how you captured the sunset in the reflection, Manja.

    1. Thank you, Jean. 🙂 It was one of those evenings when you can’t stop taking sunset photos. I’ll post some one day soon.
