IMF cinema in Torrevieja - movies in English -

The IMF cinema in Torrevieja (beside ‘Habaneras’ shopping centre) is once again showing movies in English. This week, it is popular family favourite, Ice Age with the fourth installment of the movie – Ice Age Continental Drift.

The movies in English are show in ‘original version’ or V.O. which means that although they have been dubbed in Spanish, can be enjoyed in English by wearing a pair of headphones in the cinema.

The wireless headphones transmit the original film soundtrack directly to the viewer so you can enjoy the latest blockbuster movies on the big screen, in your own language. A refundable deposit of €20 and identification (passport, drivers licence, etc) is required to borrow the headphones.

Dedicated screen for Movies in English ?

Management at the IMF cinema are keen to continue screening movies in English and revealed that they would like to dedicate one entire screen to showing movies in English all year round (with no need for headphones – the movies would be screened entirely in English).

To do this, they have askedfor feedback – would you be interested in going to the cinema? What sort of movies would you like to see?

Any ideas or feedback on how the IMF cinema can make your viewing experience enjoyable can be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will pass on your remarks.
