Segovia is a walled town, an hour or two by bus or train from Madrid, and is much visited by international tourists for sights such as the Roman aqueduct, the Cathedral, and the Alcazar (Castle). As the capital of Castilian cuisine, Segovia is much visited by the Spanish for the roast lamb and suckling pig. There is also the Zuloaga Museum in the former workshop of ceramics artist Daniel Zuloaga, so that’s likely the origins of the cinema’s name, too.

The Cine Zuloaga is in within Segovia’s walled town, in the city center known as Calle Real. My notes from seeing the movie "Absolute Power" dubbed into Spanish on October 15, 1997 is that the cinema was on Calle De Juan Bravo between 32 and 34, at the night lit Plaza de San Martin. The cinema was very historic and ornate, perhaps from the 1920’s and so it was a great pleasure to see a movie there. I did not see any stairs to the closed balcony. Main seating had 14 rows of 14 seats, aisle, 14 seats. The screen I estimated at about 30 feet wide. A green curtain opened and closed before the screen. The sound was not digital, but the movie’s music was heard in surround sound from the auditorium’s side walls.

Sadly, the Cine Zuloaga, along with the only other cinema in the city center, closed in 2007 due to competition from a multiplex in a shopping mall outside the city center. The shopping mall opened about 2003.
