Film: French Exit

This Tuesday, the 25th at 17.00h you will be able to watch the 2020 film, French Exit (English-language version and Spanish subtitles) at the Salobreña Auditorio.

FILM: French Exit MY21It’s called a drama comedy and is a bit wacky, according to the critics. It stars Michelle Pfeiffer.

I hope you are all enjoying these films and like the choices picked for you. We try to mix the genres but finding comedies or lighter films has been hard this year.

Please send in any films you would like but Nuria likes more modern ones as they are easier to get and I really don’t like films with lots of violence and horror.

We are hoping to show The trial of the Chicago 7 on June 1st which has great reviews and not too much fighting.. Nuria will continue with the films into the summer depending on numbers attending.

See you on Tuesday with masks on and social distancing, entrance five euros. Many thanks to Nuria and Gustavo who do a great job getting us the films we like.

    Gavin: feedback like yours is not only helpful for the film team but is also a good dose of encouragement. The lack of advanced notice is my fault, however, as Diana sends the film for the following Tuesday at the end of the previous week, but I hang onto it because if it goes up on a Friday, for example, people might forget about it before Tuesday comes around, so I try and publish it on the Monday. Anyway, I’ll put it up as soon as I get it in futures. 😉

    Hello Martin, I just want to thank Diana, Nuria and Gustavo for doing this program. As someone who is trying to learn Spanish, I find English speaking movies with Spanish subtitles to be helpful.

    While Netflix/Amazon at home is convenient, we still enjoy watching movies on a proper, large screen once in a while.

    I just hope we could get a bit of advance notice instead of on the same day. I wholeheartedly agree with Diana that we don’t need extreme violence and horror in movies as we already get plenty from the news. I’m a believer of the theory that the graphic imagery of gratuitous (and often glamorized) violence depicted in TV and movies is largely contributing to the violence epidemic in our society (most prevalent in the US and spreading elsewhere, unfortunately).

    Anyway, kudos and thanks to Diana and team, we look forward to seeing more movies at the Salobreña Auditorio.
