Cinemas Puerto Banus - always wrong

(marbella)

I have lived in Marbella for more than 12 years. The lack of options forces us to go to this cinema. I have yet to see a film where all is ok.


The worst case was when we saw meet the fockers. Towards the last 30 min of the film all grips and microphones were visible. Not just the mics but the entire grip. Where they got this copy is a mystery.

Often english films start with the wrong language and have to be stopped. They then do not start from the begining but simply carry on.

Films are often out of focus. Today watched the latest instalment of die hard. all medium and long range shots were out of focus. Asked staff twice before they fixed it for the lat third of film

You can always count on:

1. sound during adverts way above 90 decibels. Not every time will carry this through the entire film.

2. cinema 5 has a hole in the screen, small but clearly visible.

3. Staff that simply could not care less.


Other stuff. Film plays at 20% of sound so nothing can be heard, all subtitles in an english speaking film are in Spanish, so when something is said in Russian...

Puerto Banus cinema

I agree with all of this!! Plus, the cinema times are always wrong... I went to see "Les Miserables" at 4.30pm (I SAW IT ON THE WEBSITE AND THE FLYER!!!) and I get there and the cinema opens at 5.30pm... I've attempted to go to this cinema many many times but never again!! xx

Puerto Banus Cinema-

Sorry to disagree but we have been going there for years and apart from the sound level sometimes being too high we have never experienced a problem, and are so grateful to see recently movies in English and found the staff have always been extremely kind & helpful.
