Verdi Park in Calle Torrijos has a bright and modern exterior, and also offers animation matinees for kids on Saturday and Sundays. And you still get the occasional short before your movie at certain showings.

My local cinema for the past 7 years. Hands down offering the most interesting programming in town. Actually totalling 9 screens, if combined with Verdi Park HD which has an entrance in the next street behind Calle Verdi.

Great pictures. I lived in the street behind this cinema for 5 years so I know the finishing times by heart. Quite modern and comfortable. Usually where I would go to check out spanish movies like Sleep Tight, The Skin I Live In and The Orphanage. They have gone back to projecting Opera in digital since 2011.

The most central movie theatre for independant movies in their original language. Has saved me many trips to the Icaria multiplex in the olympic village.

Actually closed since 2011, I hope whoever takes it over changes the seating. Programming was very eclectic though.

The most uncomfortable theatre i’ve been in. Only went twice in my 12 years here.

Without a doubt my favorite cinema in the whole world. My craving for Maltesers comes from the beautiful concession stand in front of the doors. Watership Down may have been my first movie there. And endless reruns of Grease in 78-79.

For the longest time there was a poster in the lobby for Heaven Can Wait with Warren Beatty in his grey track suit. It never seemed to go down.

I’m so glad it’s up and running again.

My earliest film going memories come from this cinema. Disney’s Robin Hood or Herbie goes to Monte Carlo. And more crucially the place where a lot of us discovered Star Wars, and returned again and again. I still remember queueing outside the right hand side for many a movie. Thanks for the pictures. I also remember the bright inside lobby and the flight of stairs to get to the screens.

Beautiful picture house and the most comfy at the time. I remember the early Polanski season from June 95 with Knife in Water. And another few indie classics like Clerks, Ed Wood and Amateur.

I remember the Made in HongKong series from 94-95 also : Zu Warriors, City on Fire, Spooky Encounters, The Killer of course. All the Kitanos up to Sonatine.

Also where I discovered 4th gen chinese film makers like Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige, not forgetting the beautiful Gong Li. I would have never seen Red Sorghum, Farewell My Concubine without this place.

Other beauties I remember were Cronos, Dazed and Confused, Reservoir Dogs.

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for this theatre.
