It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Cinema Al Fresco in Barcelona
The hazy sun is out in full glory and it seems that indoor cinema in such extreme temperatures is all to testing. Good thing that Barcelona has taken this into their own hands with a variety of outdoor venues throughout the cinema to watch local and international films. Depending on the location, it can be a romantic experience or a simple and nice thing to do with a group of friends. Find some of the events listed below.
Now Sala Montjuïc may have come to an end but from 6th August until the end of the month one can watch films in the Pati de les Dores, at CCCB in Raval. The free summer open-air screenings include a selection of films that represent contemporary cinema. All of the non-commercial films have been accredited by film scholars or won awards at various festivals for their work. The theme of this year’s films is when tragic events happen and require humor as an escape. The spaces are limited, so get their early!

Cinema Lliure a la Platja
What could possibly be better than relaxing on the beach with a blanket, good food, company and a cool film with the sea as a backdrop? This initiative has proved popular, which is exactly why it has returned back to Sant Sebastià beach. This event is also free and focuses on showing international films in the original language, with subtitles in Spanish. It runs every Wednesday, with films starting at 10pm.
Platja de Sant Sebastià
This has been on for a while but is still in full swing with a series of progressive short films and animations on every Friday until the 30th August. Screenings take place at Plaça del Baluard in Poble Espanyol from 8-12pm, expect a bar service and comfy hammocks for you to relax on whilst you enjoy the films.
