    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.
