Summer is full of fun things to do. BBQs with friends, dining outdoors, weekend (or longer) getaways, family lunches, catching up on a show or starting a new one… There is something for everyone. Summer is the time when (almost) anything goes, even heading up to a hotel rooftop in Barcelona to see a classic movie under the stars.

And that is exactly what we did this summer—for the second time. We liked last year’s idea so much, we decided to do it again. Our Cinematic Hotels sessions kicked off in late June and came to a close last week. It was an activity designed for people who love movies, great views, cool things to do, and great wines, of course.

This year’s sessions were a resounding success and once again drew a good crowd. Every screening saw dozens of people enjoying great classic movies in original version with Spanish subtitles, along with a glass of Jean Leon 3055. Guests had their pick of Chardonnay, Rosé or Merlot-Petit Verdot. Not only did they enjoy the seventh art and good wine but also magnificent rooftop vistas of Barcelona. City lights, stars, iconic buildings, the sea… an exceptional skyline. And popcorn to round out the movie-going experience.

This edition featured the participation of the Hotel Negresco Princess, Hotel Renaissance, Hotel Hilton, Hotel España, Hotel Barcelona Princess and Hotel Barceló Raval, where we screened six classic movies with big-name stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, who also happened to be friends with Jean Leon: High Society, Touch of Evil, Rebel Without A Cause, The Misfits, Cool Hand Luke and Rear Window.

An initiative that paired two of Jean Leon’s biggest passions to perfection: cinema and wine.
