Cinema Lliure a la Platja is a free taster of independent cinema that takes place on summer nights on various beaches along the Catalan coast.
SCREENINGS WILL TAKE PLACE IN BARCELONA, PALAMÓS AND TOSSA DE MAR
Good films on summer nights continue in Barcelona, Palamós and Tossa de Mar. In Barcelona there has only been one change: the first session scheduled for July 30 has been postponed (‘And Then We Danced’) until August 11 following recent measures taken by local authorities in the face of the Covid-19 outbreaks. So, in Barcelona the 4 scheduled films are still going ahead as planned.
In Palamós and Tossa de Mar the programme will be the same as planned and will take place on the usual beaches, following hygiene and social distance measures against Covid-19: Platja Gran de Palamós (Palamós) and Platja Gran at Tossa de Mar (Tossa de Mar). The first Cinema Lliure a la Platja 2020 film will be ‘The Days to Come’ on Wednesday August 5 in Tossa de Mar.
IN BARCELONA AT CEM, LA MAR BELLA, LIMITED CAPACITY, BOOK IN ADVANCE
In Barcelona, Cinema Lliure a la Platja will take place in an especially designated open air space next to the CEM La Mar Bella, with views of the beach and the sea. Screenings will not be held on the beach, in keeping with Covid-19 regulations. There will be limited capacity and booking available in advance.
How do I book a spot in Barcelona?
A week before each session in Barcelona, you will be able to book a spot for yourself and up to three friends via a form on our website. Reservations will be closed at 12:00 midday on the day of each screening. Remember: you have to book in a group and all the people have to come together. No one will be allowed to enter separately. If you’re a large family, you can make two reservations in a row so that you can be together, but one adult is required for every two children.
There will be entry time slots between 20 pm and 21 pm. Once you’ve made the reservation, within a maximum period of 48 hours you will receive a confirmation email and your assigned access time slot. Arriving at your assigned time is crucial to avoid crowds. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon!
