    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.

    This will save the movie buffs the long trip to Lorca so its up to we interested ex pats to support it (as i understand its on a trial run) my only concern is the late night showing)
