Sala Montjuic home
Picture sitting on a comfortable lounger in the gardens of a castle with a band playing softly in the background, a bar behind you providing beverages and light snacks and the anticipation of waiting for your all-time favourite film to begin, all outside in the balmy summer air against the backdrop of the most beautiful view in Barcelona.
No need for the imagination; summer is here again and so is Sala Montjuïc. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from July 4th until August 5th, a selection of the best classic and contemporary films will be projected onto the wall of Montjuïc Castle, shown in their original languages and subtitled in Castilian. The grounds will open from 8.30pm each evening with performances at 9pm by a variety of bands playing everything from jazz and soul to pop and R'n'B. A short documentary in Castilian will then precede the main picture, which begins at 10.15pm. Shuttle buses will be available from 8.30pm at Plaça Espanya and will be there to ferry sleepy cinema-goers back once the film is finished.
July 4th to August 5th. TIckets €5 plus €3 to rent a deckchair. www.salamontjuic.org
