We had jumped the metro down to stop Sol and walked onto Plaza De Callao with its amazing modern architecture and bright and glitzy electronic advertising screens and my eye was immediately drew to this fantastic looking cinema.
Callao Cinema is probably the most famous...More
Wow that's a cool one, not so much for the movies show itself, but for the location, it is located right in the city center near the famous Plaza Callao and Callao subway station too. All around it there is a fantastic atmosphere, literally invaded...More
If you are around Callao, go and take a look. The building is no so impressive and the theater is kind of dirty. It's also expensive and they have the same movies that you can easily see back home. Go take a look and walk...More
Recently watched 'el lado bueno de las cosas' in this cinema, Silver Linings Playbook to those who dont speak Spanish.

This is very much an old style cinema that is not one of the "20 screen complexes" found so often. Set in the corner of the PLaza de Callao it is a place to go to enjoy a trip to the cinema as it would...More
While I was studying in Madrid there was a premiere of great snowboard movie, my boyfriend organised tickets from Quick in Madrid (thanks!) and we could participate in this event.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
