We’ve had Sala Montjuïc and the Cinema Lliure a la Platja, and this month it’s the turn of the CCCB to host its annual outdoor cinema series, Gandules. Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, a different film will be screened at the Pati de les Dones, the CCCB’s central courtyard. The theme this year is love, and the nine films in the series have been selected for the many diverse forms of love that they celebrate—everything from clichéd hopeless romantics and hunky heartthrobs, to gay affairs and lesbian lovers. The series will open with Bed and Sofa (Tretya meshchanskaya), a 1927 Soviet silent film that explores the dynamics of a polygamous relationship set in the stark reality of life in 1920s working-class Moscow. Entrance to Gandules is free, but places are limited.
Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from August 4th - 21st, at 10pm. For more information visit www.cccb.org.
