Music
And don’t will be only movies! Each session also includes a concert, a total of 18 events divided into three afternoons a week, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For the music program the organization chose the artists who have impressed in the last 10 years in the Sala Montjuïc. In fact this year will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the festival. It is a very special year for the Sala Montjuïc occasion of its tenth anniversary. In the last ten years has become a success, even for the price. Only 5 euros per ticket is cheaper than the city theaters. This makes it so popular: for this reason I advise you not come too late, otherwise you will not find site!

Tips
Be sure not to forget a blanket or if you prefer, you can rent a beach chair, you can rent for 3 euros. There will be some handy kiosks selling hot dogs nachos, etc. as well as beer and champagne bottles. I personally prefer a picnic on the lawn, bringing me things to eat and drink and enjoy the evening with friends. Do not forget to bring a sweatshirt, the castle is in the middle of a forest and at night is very cold!

Transport
By car: parking is 10 minutes from the castle.
Public Transport: there is a special bus service that runs from Plaça Espanya to the Sala Montjuïc. This leaves Plaça Espanya down the Towers at 20.30 – 21.30 and returns at the end of the film.
