9/9 – English Cinema?

September 10, 2007 | No comments | Blog

Bob and Jackie invited us out to the cinema this evening, the cinema in question, which showed films in English (with Spanish subtitles) every weekend, was located in Pilar de la Horadada; a town about 30 minutes south of Bob and Jackie.

The cinema was quite small (although Bob pointed out that it could seat 800 people after a quick count of the rows), and used to be “open air” with a wooden concertina roof which I don’t think works any more (shame as it was quite warm).

The cinema is opened by the local council and manned, we think, by volunteers the cost to watch a film is only 5 Euros and the whole thing seems to be run rather like a non-profit making organisation, the local Spanish council worker that organises everything is keen to point out that without people attending they would not be able to show up to date films like the one we watched last night – Oceans 13 – great film.

We are going back in 2 weeks to watch Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix.
