Watching English-Language films at the Cinema in the Axarquía

 

Cinesur at Velez-Malaga

The only cinema regularly showing English language films in the Axarquía region is Cinesur in the El Ingenio shopping centre at Vélez-Málaga.

Address:  Avda.Juan Carlos I S/N, Vélez-Málaga.

Tel: 952 547 309 – 952 547 267 – 902 504 150.

This is an air-conditioned cinema complex featuring 12 screens and is upstairs, near the restaurant area, in the El Ingenio shopping centre.

Price: 7.50 € (4.40 € on Wednesdays, only).
Website: Cinesur

There is a discount card available at Cinesur called Tarjeta 5, which reduces the price of all shows to 5 euros.  This means there is no need to wait for a Wednesday to get a good deal (though if you do go on a Wednesday and use your Tarjeta 5 card, you will get in for 3.90 € instead of the usual 4.40 €).

Cinema entrance

Cinesur cinema was showing English language films ten years ago when I first came to Spain, but because of dwindling numbers of film-goers, Cinesur stopped showing them.  Fortunately, we have them back now – but when I went to see “EVEREST” a couple of weeks ago, there were just three of us in the cinema.

Can I just say – please support our local cinema showing original version films – because if we don’t, they will stop showing films in English.

USE IT OR LOSE IT!

I’ve got a special offer to encourage you to go to Cinesur at the El Ingenio centre.  (Other cinemas throughout Spain are also taking part, details HERE).

On the 3rd, 4th and 5th of November the twice-yearly “Fiesta del Cine” will be held throughout Spain, when tickets will cost just 2.90 €. First, you’ll need to register online at the official website to receive your personalised discount voucher.  Then, between the 3-5 November when you go to the cinema, take along your voucher PLUS photo ID, and your ticket will cost you just 2.90 €.

Cool, huh?

Language Options to look out for:

VOSE = Versión Original Subtitulada en Español which means Original Version Subtitled in Spanish.
**VO = Version Original means Original Version without subtitles.

You might want to look if the original version was filmed in English!
Always check the cinema’s website and/or telephone for timings, before you set off (especially if you are travelling to Málaga).

You can usually buy your tickets online or, of course, at the cinema.

 

Are you a film buff?  Do you mind watching films with subtitles or do they distract you?

  1. Subtitles are far more bearable than dubbing. If I had a penny for every time I’ve heard “Spanish dubbing is the best in the world”, or words to that effect…

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! IT IS NOT!!!!! IT’S THE SAME 10 PEOPLE DOING ALL OF THE VOICES!!!!! BLOODY ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!

    But having grown up with dubbing myself, I know that it seems perfectly fine – hell, you don’t even much notice it! – if you’ve never known anything else, that is.

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
