On Saturday, March 18, CPH:DOX (and a lucky handful of the audience) will check in at Nimb to go behind the scenes of some of the world’s most prestigious and well-hidden hotels.

NOTE: There are a very limited number of tickets.

You will be guaranteed a feeling of escapism, accompanied by walking on soft carpets, the sound of the key card opening the door, and the smell of crisp, freshly laundered linens.

Hotels are a whole mysterious world, especially for being everything that one’s home is not. But what does it really mean to stay in a hotel? Can one live his life in hotels? And what does having a home actually mean?

You can get all these answers when CPH:DOX presents the international premiere of ‘The Hotel’ at the prestigious Nimb Hotel in Copenhagen. Here you can sit back in soft chairs, learn about the hotels’ subtle world and ask questions to the film director, Kristian Petri, who will attend the event.

Skarsgård and sophisticated snacks

‘The Hotel’ is a thought-provoking and visually stunning film that poetically reveals the many layers in the supernal world of hotels. The film mixes historical and literary references with personal views and stories from Kristian Petri’s own life. You can also experience the star actor Stellan Skarsgård, the Swedish playwright Lars Norén, when each of them reveals their relationship to the hotels’ mythical world.

For the Nimb Hotel screening on March 18, the popcorn will be replaced by a series of sophisticated snacks (included in the ticket price). The audience will also have the opportunity to order cocktails subsequently at Nimb Bar, which will serve special hotel-drinks for the event.

All in all, the evening is a must for anyone who swoons over the top-hotels’ sophisticated elegance, loves room service or maybe even feels that they have a home somewhere else in the world.

Or for those who just want to check in at the Nimb Hotel for only 150 kr.
