Plans come in thick and fast in summer: Barbecues at friends’ houses, al fresco dinners, weekend getaways (and longer), family meals, starting or finishing a TV series... It’s up to you to choose the plan. It’s summer and (almost) anything goes – even going up to the terrace of a hotel in Barcelona and watching a classic movie outdoors.

Which is what we’ve been doing since the end of June and the entire month of July. We’ve chosen the most exclusive terraces of 5-star hotels in Barcelona to host “Hoteles de Cine”: An activity designed for those who love film, nice views, cool plans, and, of course, good wines.

It’s been a hit with the audiences, with each showing attended by around 40 people who enjoyed the best movie classics in their original versions with Spanish subtitles, along with a glass of Jean Leon 3055. Chardonnay, Rosé, or Merlot-Petit Verdot, depending on their taste. And they didn’t just enjoy the art of film and good wine, they also had the opportunity to take in amazing views of Barcelona from a bird’s eye level. Lights, sea, stars, iconic buildings... an exceptional skyline. And to make it an even more authentic moviegoer experience, there was also popcorn available. ;)

The Hotel Arts, Hotel Pullman, Novotel City, The Gates Hotel Diagonal Barcelona, and NH Calderón all took part in this initiative, where we screened six movie classics starring the great actors and actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age, who were great friends of Jean Leon: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, West Side Story, Some Like It Hot, The Seven Year Itch, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and A Streetcar Named Desire.

This was definitely an activity that perfectly combined two of Jean Leon’s great passions: film and wine.
