There’s few things better than picking up some delicious treats, making a picnic and heading off to spend some time with friends and family. Which is why one of our favorite things to do in summer is going to see a movie under the stars at the beach.
When the summer comes do not waste your time being locked inside. Going to the cinema is always a good plan, why not enjoy it out on the beach of Barcelona? During many nights of the months of summer films will be screened directly on the beach.
Go for a swim, have a snack and get to the Sant Sebastià beach at the Barceloneta district before sundown to catch one of the summer flicks. It’s a favorite spot for locals to see a movie outside in Barcelona, and one of the most scenic of the outdoor cinemas in Barcelona! Space is limited so make sure you get there early if you want a good spot!
Like every year, with sponsorship from Estrella Damm beer, Barcelona presents Cinema Lliure a la Platja — as it’s called in Catalan. Independent films which, as we said, takes place on San Sebastián beach, every Thursday and some Sundays from the end of June till the beginning of August at 9pm.
Cinema Lliure is also a meeting point to discuss, comment and enjoy not only films, but also music and short films projected under the light of the moon.
Bustling Barceloneta not your scene? Don’t worry! In 2017, they added not one, not two, but three more beaches to the event list! And all of them are equally as great! Movies will be shown in Badalona, El Prat and Mataró beaches. So grab your beach towels and some tasty snacks and make sure you don’t miss out.
