This large square is home to Venice's second most important cinematic event. Around 1,000 cinemagoers a night brave the mosquitoes to fill this open-air arena. Films are generally reruns of the previous season's blockbusters, plus the odd preview. During the Film Festival, you can catch some original-language films a day or two after their Lido screening.
