Do you want to watch a movie outdoors in an Open Air Cinema in Barcelona? There is no better summer plan than enjoying a movie under the stars, and the best place in town is in Montjuic mountain surrounded by its beautiful gardens. The Montjuic Open Air Cinema, or Cinema a la Fresca de Sala Montjuic, in catalan, celebrates its latest edition by once again screening the best films in their original language with Spanish subtitles. It is a great way to enjoy movies! Furthermore, another good thing is that it is located at the Montjuic Hill, where at its foot, you can find our boutique hotel!
What is the Montjuic Open Air Cinema?
Every summer, from the 1st of July until the 5th of August, you can enjoy the best of the Open-Air cinema in Barcelona. When enjoying the fresh summer air, you can at the same time enjoy movies! During these five weeks, the gardens of the Montjuic Castle become an outdoor cinema where films of all kinds are screened, as well as short films, live concerts, and masterclasses before the start of the film.
At the Montjuic Cinema, the only thing you need is to bring something to sit down, but if you can´t bring it, you can also rent it at the location. Even though there are some food trucks on site, you can bring some snacks and drinks yourself. It is recommended to be there around 8.45-9.00PM to get a good spot, and you can also check the weather forecast beforehand, since chances are it can get chilly on the summer evenings, since it is outdoors, at the top of the hill and surrounded by gardens.
Speaking of the weather forecast, in case of rain before the projection has begun, the organisers may cancel it. In that case, if you already purchased the ticket, you can get a refund. If the film has already begun and it starts to rain, then everyone will be able to attend another film later with the same ticket.
Where is it and How to get There?
The Montjuic open-air cinema takes place in the summertime from 28th of June until the 6th of August at the Montjuic Castle fields. The opening time is around 8.30 PM, and the movie starts at 10 PM.
The address of the Montjuic Castle is at Carretera de Montjuic, 66. You can get there by taking the Metro Line L1 or L3, exiting at Espanya stop.
