When you think of Ibiza, the first thing which may spring to mind is relaxing in a luxurious private villa, soaking up the sun on one of the many beautiful beaches, or dancing the night away in one of the world famous superclubs. However, in recent years, a new and wonderful way to enjoy some of the islands most beautiful venues has been introduced.
Outdoor pop up cinema screenings have become big news on the White Isle, with some of the islands hottest destinations hosting one off screenings of films of all genres and for all ages. Whatever your movie style, you are sure to find something to suit you, from cult classics such as Pulp Fiction, to epic films which take you back to your youth, think Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman. And of course there are special events just for the little islanders, with the latest children films being shown as well. Films are generally shown in their original language (usually English), with Spanish subtitles.
And as this is Ibiza, it is of course all done in style! No packed out crammed multiplex screens, rather sumptuous loungers, beanbags and fairy lit gardens, all serving sublime food and drinks to you as you relax under the canopy of the stars and enjoy your movie night.
One of the first places to pioneer this new trend was Amante, the elegant cliffside beach club which offers breathtaking views over the bay of Sol dén Serra. If there is a more romantic spot to indulge in some serious screen time then we can´t think of one! Unlimited popcorn, luxurious beanbags and blankets to keep you cosy should there be a sea breeze are all included in the price, plus a complimentary glass of cava. Attentive staff are on hand to keep your drinks and popcorn topped up and you can also enjoy bar snacks or indulge in a meal before or after the screening at the excellent restaurant.

Cinema Paradiso Ibiza is an independant company who arrange pop up movie nights at various locations across the island. Locations have included spots inside the breathtaking and historic walls of Dalt Vila, which presides over the capital Ibiza Town, offering a truly memorable movie experience. Other venues include the stylish Santos Suites Apartments in Playa dén Bossa, and we will be buying tickets to see the classic Martin Scorsese movie Goodfellas there on 3rd September.
Cinema Paradiso can also arrange private cinema events in the comfort and privacy of your Ibiza villa, leaving the movie choices to you, whilst recreating the inimitable ambience they bring to each of their public locations.
