Sala Montjuïc

Summer is here and has brought back the Cinema a la Fresca de Sala Montjuïc (“Open-air Cinema at Montjuïc”) celebrates its latest edition by once again screening the best films that have been recently released in their original language with subtitles in Spanish. A great way to enjoy cinema and learn Spanish at the same time!

Sala Montjuïc is a project organised by Associació Cultural MODIband, a cultural association established in 2003 to stage open-air and auteur children’s film festivals. They also present My First Festival (children’s film festival) and have established Rita&Luca Films, an independent children’s film distribution label. They work regularly with other cultural institutions, enabling new audiences to discover the diversity of the cinematic world. Also at MODIband love films and believe in culture as a source of personal and collective enrichment, as a reflection of the creative and ideological diversity that exists in the world and as a driver for social change.

During five weeks of summer, the gardens of Montjuïc Castle become an outdoor cinema where films of all kinds will be screened, plus short films, live concerts before starting the film.

You only need to bring something to sit down (a blanket or folding chair), otherwise you can rent a seat there. There is a bar on site. It’s recommended to get there at 8:30 PM (starts of ticket sales) or before, so that you can get a good spot.
