Ciné plein air – open air cinema in Perpignan
16th July - 13th August
Ciné plein air
With the lingering threat of Covid 19, and on a brighter note, the warm summer evenings, now is the perfect time to enjoy cinema under the stars!
Sit back and watch family-friendly, cult films from the 50s to today, projected onto the big screen as night falls, with the majestic Casa Musicale as a backdrop.
Kick-start the evening at 8pm with a pre-programme screening of images of old Perpignan from the Institut’s archives… and other surprises!
Then, under the lanterns, enjoy the main feautre from 10pm with tasty treats and refreshments (including, of course, pop corn!) available from the food truck and stalls on site.
Tickets only 5€ – to be reserved in advance (see links below)
All films are shown in VO (version original = original language in which it was filmed) with STFR (sous-titres français = French subtitles)
