Mecal Air Barcelona

Mecal Air is back on Saturdays at the lake by the Museu del Disseny | FREE ENTRY |

Mecal Air, the longest-running outdoor cinema of the summer, is back for an 11th consecutive year to liven up the Barcelona summer nights, now on Saturdays.

The free short film screenings under the stars take place at a magical spot: the lake behind the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona (Jardins Elisava), and ideal plan to escape the heat while combining both culture and leisure, as the fans that gather to enjoy these open-air sessions will acknowledge.

Every Saturday, from the 29th of June until La Festa de la Mercè, at sunset, the Mecal screen will showcase some of this year’s best short films (plus some hidden gems and other surprises) in themed sessions, such as Voyage Voyage, Comedy, Erotic shorts and Horror.

Since it’s a free event, punctuality is recommended so that you can get your favourite spot. There will be a bar, open from 8pm, so that no-one in the audience will be hungry or thirsty.
