Son's evaluation: The La Canada cinema is great. I have a fun time watching new movies whilst eating popcorn or candy. Although, before the movie starts, some trailers can be scary. After watching the movie, you can go shopping. But I prefer the movies in Puerto Banus. Grade: 9.0
Daughter's evaluation: Movies are for Spanish speaking people. It is quite boring seeing the trailers before the movie starts. Grade: 7.0
Mom's evaluation: The La Canada cinema offers all the latest
movies, however they are usually in Spanish. My kids speak Spanish so
this is not problem, but keep this in mind when you go. They love going
to the cinema here as it also means a trip to Ben & Jerry's conveniently located across the cinema entrance.
The theatre rooms themselves are generally small, but I think it makes it all a bit more cozy, especially if you have little ones that get scared easily. I don't know why cinemas here and around the world see the need to crank up the volume, so be prepared. In summer bring a sweater as the AC is also on high.
The cinema is located right next to the bowling alley and an arcade, so if you want to combine two or three events it's easy to spend the whole day at the mall. A good thing when the weather isn't its best. If you want to split up, there are plenty of boutiques, hairdressers, and cafes in the mall as well as a hipermarket if you want to get some shopping done while the kids watch a movie. Grade: 8.0
Dad's evaluation: There are two main theater complexes in Marbella. The La Canada cinema has smaller screens, however it is conveniently located in a mall. It is easy to park and there is plenty to do before or after the movies. Grade: 8.0
