Great films, cool plan: Zinètic at the Regio cinema
The Regio cinema in Sant Antoni continues with the third edition of Zinètic, a super interesting film series promoted by Juanjo Ribas and Josep Senda.
Zinètic is a great opportunity for all cinephiles to share their passion and enjoy a very well-curated selection of alternative movies with a shocking narrative force, and a beautiful aesthetic, which are normally outside the blockbuster offering.
All films are screened in V.O.S.E. (original version with Spanish subtitles) on Thursdays at 9:30 pm and the tickets cost only 5€ per session.
Supported by the City Hall of Sant Antoni, the screenings—which began last November—will last until 21 March. And, if you haven’t been at Regio yet, you should know this cinema is a real legend. Ran by the same family since its origins, the red velvet curtains, the theatre seating (which ensures a perfect view) and the retro interior design, make it a great option to enjoy the movies in the traditional way.
Tonight is the turn of Suspiria, directed by Luca Guadagnino, in Italy. Suspiria is the remake of the homonymous fantastic horror movie made in 1977. Luca Guadagnino, known for his last movie “Call me by your name”, presents a powerful plot where art, fantasy and terror are mixed in perfect alchemy.
Check out the program with the upcoming events:
