Make yourself at home on a comfy beanbag, a bag of popcorn and/or cheeky glass of wine in hand and watch one of Hollywood’s greatest productions under the White Isle’s starry night skies. Sounds good? Yes, yes it does! It’s no surprise that pop-up movie theatre Cinema Paradiso has become a runaway success, appearing in some of the island’s most atmospheric locations. And on May 30th, the team will bring all-time favourite Casablanca to the stylish surroundings of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay.
Situated on the long stretch of sand of Talamanca beach, the glamorous five-star property is the epitome of nature-inspired chic. Cinema Paradiso will set up by the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool, so you can enjoy the full impact of the property’s beautiful design with a gentle sea breeze in your hair. Meanwhile, Casablanca needs little introduction to movie buffs as one of the greatest romantic dramas of all time, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid. The movie will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles.
Each 30 Euro ticket includes a seat, headset, popcorn and a glass of cava. If you are missing this spectacular screening, there are several more dates to look out for over the course of the season. In June, Cinema Paradiso will be showing on four dates. Head to the stunning cliff-side destination Amante Beach Club on June 12th to catch American Made with Tom Cruise, or June 19th to see Get Out! June 21st offers the chance to enjoy the critically acclaimed Three Billboards Outside Ebbing in the historic setting of Dalt Vila, while on June 26th the cinema returns to Amante for a screening of The Shawshank Redemption.
Over the summer, fans of the concept can also look forward to showings of movies old and new including I, Tonya, The Godfather 2, Blue Jasmine, Into The Wild, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Victoria, The Usual Suspects, Grease, The Wolf of Wall Street and many more. Other productions include the Spanish Y Tu Mama Tambien and Portuguese drama Cidade De Deus. And if none of these tickle your fancy, you can also hire Cinema Paradiso for a private screening – from films to football games – at your villa.
