Madrid for Cinema Lovers

By | 24 June, 2011 | 0 comments

Cine Doré is the place to go for film lovers. Nestled between the buildings of Calle Santa Isabel and the food market at the back, this quaint cinema is a mecca for movie geeks and also for those who love watching movies in the original version with Spanish subtitles.

Every month they have a mini cinema festival, showing the best movies of a director, an actor, an actress or from a genre. They have big poster-like leaflets in the lobby with the cinema programme for the whole month. There are a couple of cinema rooms, although quite small so tickets tend to sell out quite quickly. However, even if your movie is sold out, it’s always a nice idea to stick around in the cafe-lobby and enjoy the atmosphere. Many people just go the Cine Doré to chat, have a coffee and browse the books in their bookshop. Cine Doré is attached to the Spanish Film Institute, which possesses a vast collection of films.

Until the end of June, you will be able to enjoy some of the films by the Mexican Alexandro Jodorowsky as well as movies of Spanish fantastic cinema and movies about the Spanish civil war.

On Sunday 26th you can watch a 70s classic film, Who can kill a child? (¿Quién puede matar a un niño?) by a well-known Spanish horror director Narciso Ibañez Serrador. The story is very similar to the 80s horror The Children of the Corn. Some say it was inspired in Serrador’s 70s horror film.
