This year, the a la fresca cinema is adapting to the new normality and changing its location in Ses Voltes, with a total of 18 films, to which we can add 10 children’s films that have already begun to be shown in different neighbourhoods of Palma.
The traditional open-air cinema in Palma will be held this year in Ses Voltes, with a provisional change of location due to its adaptation to the new normality, the established capacity control and the fulfilment of the social distancing measures. In this way, the open-air cinema programme will begin at Ses Voltes on 4th August, once the Atlantida Film Fest has finished, as usual, and will last until 13th September.
Thus, from August 4th to September 13th, 3 weekly films will be shown on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at Ses Voltes, including Sunday 13th September, the closing date of the programme. A total of 18 films will be screened in this emblematic space of Palma, in addition to 10 children’s films, which have already begun to be made in different Palma neighbourhoods. Therefore, a total of 28 screenings will be added throughout the summer to the central programme in Ses Voltes.

Finally, it should be remembered that due to precautionary measures, seating capacity will be limited and therefore it is recommended to attend the screenings well in advance, the use of a mask will be mandatory and safety distances must be maintained. Furthermore, due to the current circumstances and health restrictions, spectators are asked to follow the organisation’s instructions at all times.
