Cinema Lliure a la Platja has a collection on Filmin where you can see most of the films that have formed part of our free independent cinema on summer nights at the beach. However, it is a paid platform so you need a user account to enjoy it. This is because Cinema Lliure a la Platja cannot offer movies online free of charge, since it is not a distributor. The only way to watch movies for free is by coming to the beach. That’s why we encourage you to enjoy this free and unique cultural experience on summer nights!
