Cinema on The Beach—Cala Llonga
Erecting a huge screen right on the sand, Cala Llonga were one of the first to take movies outdoors in Ibiza. All films are free thanks to sponsorship from the neighbouring Amante Beach Club and the support of several local businesses and Santa Eulalia Town Hall, all pulled together by Ibiza’s masters of community organisation, Viva Cala Llonga.
The next two films scheduled are
- July 30th 9.30pm Minions
- Aug 6th 9.30pm How to train your dragon.
Viva Cala Llonga recommend you take a cushion, blanket, and something warm to wrap up in as can get chilly. Seriously, they think of everything.
