An adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master way-finder. Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds.

About 1898: Los Últimos de Filipinas

Predominantly filmed in Gran Canaria, this Spanish film tells the story of a Spanish detachment besieged in the town of Baler on the Philippine island of Luzon by Filipino revolutionary insurgents for 337 days at the end of the nineteenth century. In December 1898, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris between Spain and the United States, the war between the two countries was formally ended and Spain ceded sovereignty over the Philippines to the United States. Because of this, the besieged in Baler are known as “Los Últimos de Filipinas” (the last of the Filipinos).

    To maximise the potential audience wouldn’t it make sense to show the Spanish movies with subtitles and vice versa!

    I hear what you are saying, but the capacity of the room isn’t that high, so providing subtitles for multiple languages for the main nationalities that live there for 4 or 5 nights for each film may outweigh the benefits. The total population of Albox is only 11.4k, with foreigners from 52 countries accounting for 3.2k approximately (Brits account for just 1.2k). I don’t see Odeon etc in the UK offering it, and they have huge cinemas with hundreds of potentially filled seats for each viewing, which is then multiplied across dozens of locations.

    A great opportunity for us all to practice our Spanish language listening skills though.
