Cinema lovers in Ibiza are in luck with initiatives such as those organized by the San José City Council this summer 2020 in Sant Jordi or this one that we tell you about in the town of San José.
The Divendres de Cine series organized throughout the year in Can Jeroni becomes during the summer months Fresh Cinema and the projections are transferred to courtyard of the Old Schools of San José, so you can enjoy great movies outdoors, just like the heat.
The appointment is every Friday in July and August of 2020 at 22 hours.
The films shown are from quality and they are small jewels somewhat removed from the commercial circuit, with many award-winning and critically endorsed films, so it is a great opportunity for film buffs in Ibiza to enjoy them on the big screen. At the moment only the tapes that are projected in the month of July have been published, all Spanish.
All films are screened at original version with Spanish subtitles (VOSE).
