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).
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 €).
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.

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?
