The summer sessions of outdoor cinema at the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona(CCCB) celebrate in 2012 its tenth anniversary with various not very well-known but acclaimed by critics and audiences at several international festivals movies. As usual, this edition offers totally for free the best films for all those who come early to the “Pati de les dones” (C / Montalegre number 5) to get the best sits or to lay and enjoy the movie in the “gandules”, hammocks that give its name to this essential event in your cultural agenda.
If you have to work in August and stay in the city or you are spending your holidays in Barcelona, do not miss these emblematic sessions from August the 7th until the end of the month, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10pm. Enjoy a cold beer while watching “Rent-a-cat” by Naoko Ogigami, “The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jane” by Marie Losier, or “Bullhead” by Michael R. Roskam. The last session on August the 24th has been selected by the audience votation, and the “winning” film has been “El ángel exterminador” by Luis Buñuel.
