Cinema Lliure a la Platja
By Yvonne Mannix
Open-air cinema is always a summer favorite. Returning to celebrate its eighth edition, the Cinema Lliure crew are back on Sant Sebastiá beach with a varied selection of films, music courtesy of iCat radio and shorts by Filmets, the Badalona film festival. The festival also shows films at the beaches of El Prat de Llobregat, Badalona and Mataró, Palamós and Tossa de Mar.
The screenings are free and the quality is exceptional. The organizers’ aim is to bring alternative films to beachgoers, proving that these aren’t just for the chin-stroking, serious brigade. It all ends on August 1st with a final show selected by the public. I intend to head down with my picnic stuff to every show. Make sure to get there early to pick a prime viewing spot. See you at the beach!
