Cine de Verano de la Bombilla

The unblemished summer sky has given rise to more open-air cinemas in the Spanish capital. And in Madrid, a night at the movies also gives you an opportunity to explore some of the capital’s most iconic buildings. From the daring programme projected inside the Palacio de Cibeles’ “crystal patio” and the commercial blockbusters and indie hits shown in a park alongside the Real Parroquia San Antonio de la Florida (with frescos painted by Goya) to the feel-good flicks screened in the quadrangle of an old military barracks – a touch of Madrid movie escapism is also a walk through local architectural history.
