Yelmo Cines Ideal

Yelmo Cines Ideal

A cinema? Why is a cinema on here? Well, Ideal stands out from the others for being the main cinema in town that shows everything in the original language (with Spanish subtitles).

If you’ve spent any time looking at cinema listing in Spain, you’ll know that virtually all the cinemas show everything dubbed.

So, it’s nice to have somewhere you can see the latest Marvel movie, or whatever, in English. I’ll always go for sub over dub, no matter what language the audio is in, so it suits me.

They will have the latest movies too; the listings are precisely what you’d expect a decent-sized cinema to offer.

Also, the cinema has been know to show anime movies, with a couple of Studio Ghibli films, and Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale having been on in the first seven months we’ve been in the city.

Be warned though, it’s *original* language audio, so if you go to see something not in English, you need either good enough Spanish to understand the subtitles or good enough ‘whatever language the original film is in’ to understand the audio.

There are nine screens, none of which is massive, but none of which feel tiny, and it’s typically pretty clean and tidy. I’ll certainly be watching most things there, even if the popcorn smell in the lobby is a bit overpowering.
