There’s something special about outdoor cinemas in summer. The pleasant breeze of summer nights, a cricket that you hear from far away, the gunfires from the other movie… Undoubtedly, outdoor cinemas are one of the best things in summer.
This summer in Madrid you can go to El Cuartel by City Lights at Centro Cultural Conde Duque, the open-air cinema promoted by Better es mejor, the coolest pop-up agency right now (they organized The Apartment, The Hovse, The Patio…). The team is completed by chef Javier Muñoz-Calero (known for the restaurants Tartán, La Muñoca, El huerto de Lucas), who will coordinate a gastro terrace with a menu composed by big names such as Albert Adriá, Andoni Luis Aduriz, Ramon Freixa and Paco Pérez del Miramar. There will also be a marketplace with nice fashion labels. Having known Better es mejor‘s previous adventures, I am sure this will be the most special place in the city this season. It will be opened from July 10th to September 28th. The movies they’ve chosen include The Departed, Avatar, The Impossible… You can get your tickets here.
And if you have a house with garden (or friends that do), it’s easy to set up an improvised outdoor cinema with help of a filmprojector… ;)
Movies I’d see at an outdoor cinema:
- Pulp Fiction
- Saving Private Ryan
- Shutter Island
- Out of Africa
- Witness for the prosecution
- The Princess Bride
- Catch me if you can
- Indiana Jones: Raiders of the lost ark
- The Sting
- Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Or well, anything by Spielberg, Hitchcock or Scorsese.
