The Marbella International Film Festival is one more complementary activity to those usually hosted by Red Dog Cinemas. In this sense, this leisure complex located in Puerto Banús offers a complete line-up with the latest releases both in Spanish and in original version subtitled in Spanish with sessions in English, French, Italian, Japanese and Hindi. “Our commitment to bringing the best cinema to Marbella is very strong, thus responding to the great demand that exists in this area for national and foreign audiences,” says Jorge Martín, operations director of Red Dog Cinemas.
In addition to films, Red Dog Cinemas has resumed live broadcasts of opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House in London, offering an extensive programme for the 2022/2023 season.
In addition to the cinema, whose users enjoy 3 hours free parking, the Red Dog Banus centre also offers leisure and gaming, art exhibitions, a wide range of restaurants and shopping, all in the same space.
