Instituto Cervantes, Manchester
Outside of Cornerhouse’s commendable Viva! season for a couple of weeks every year, and the occasional output of international stars like Almodovar, there’s generally very little chance to see even the best and most popular Spanish films in Manchester.
But the Instituto Cervantes is doing its best to address that problem with a series of screenings of some of the best contemporary Spanish cinema, ranging from drama to comedies, each Thursday at the Deansgate venue from 6.30pm.
Several films in the season are actually getting their UK premiere, they’re all subtitled and, best of all, the screenings are free! As they say, what’s not to like?
Tickets must be booked in advance from email@example.com or 0161 661 4201 and the films already booked include:
May 23 – Don’t Be Afraid (No tengas miedo)
May 30 – The Stone (Arriya)
June 6 – Cousinhood (Primos)
June 20 – No Rest for the Wicked (No habrá paz para los malvados)
