Escape the sticky city centre and lay back on the beach to enjoy some al fresco cinema. Cinema Lliure a la Platja is back for another season of avant garde film under the stars, and as usual there’s a sleek lineup of edgy and original movies. The giant screen will be set up every Thursday and Sunday from mid-July to the end of August on Platja Sant Sebastià in the Barceloneta. The evenings kick off at 9pm with music from Scanner.fm, followed by a short film selected by the Badalona Film Festival and then the evening’s feature film. The films are shown in original version with Spanish subtitles and include Tiny Furniture, the directing debut of Lena Durham of TV series Girls fame (July 17th); paranoia and comedy in Colin Trevorrow’s Safety Not Guaranteed (July 24th); Paul’s Planet, the story of Paul Fuster, a US-born singer songwriter of Catalan parents who toured Catalunya for 60 days on his bicycle giving concerts in small towns (August 10th), and a blurring of fact and fiction in A Liar’s Autobiography, a self portrait by Monty Python’s Graham Chapman (August 14th). So, pack some popcorn and a towel (or a deckchair) and head to the beach early for a good spot.
Every Thursday and Sunday between July 17th and August 24th. 9pm. Free.
