Sala Montjuïc

Much More than Open Air Cinema

Sala Montjuïc is a full experience: each session includes a live concert and short film in addition to the feature length film in the original version. The picnic is an essential element: attendees can bring food and drink from home or enjoy the eco-picnics and dry bar on site. Sun loungers are available to rent, but you can also bring your own folding chairs and blankets.

The Movies: 16 nights to Enjoy Recent Releases and Classics

Sala Montjuïc 2016 highlights five titles that marked a before and after in different film genres:

Road Movie: Thelma & Louise (1991)
Science Fiction: Interstellar (2014)
Horror: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Thriller: Nightcrawler (2014)
Biopic: The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Movies with music as driving theme include Whiplash (2014) , which chronicles the life of a jazz drummer and the Oscar winning Amy (2015) covering the life of British singer Amy Winehouse.

Films that provoke reflection on our society also form a group within this year’s schedule. Pride (2014 ) is British LGBT-related historical comedy-drama. Mommy (2014) is the story of widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone. Tangerines (2013), set in the civil war in Georgia, is about a man who stays behind to harvest tangerines and care for a wounded fighter.
