Located in the heart of the city, it has been delighting moviegoers since its opening in 1945. The cinema was named after Spanish composer and pianist Isaac Albeniz, who was born in Camprodon (Catalonia) but spent much of his life living and working in Malaga.
The original building opened with two screens: one on the ground floor and another on an upper level that could seat up to 500 people. It quickly became popular among locals as well as tourists due to its excellent location near some of the most important attractions in Malaga, such as Picasso’s birthplace or Alcazaba Fortress. Over time, more screens were added until there were five altogether – all equipped with state-of-the-art technology for sound and image quality that still stands today.
Today Albeniz Cinema continues to be a beloved spot by both locals and visitors alike thanks to its wide selection of films from different genres including classic movies, independent productions, foreign films or even avant-garde pieces – something that makes this place truly unique within Spain’s cinematic landscape. It also offers discounts for students, which make it an attractive option for those looking to watch some great movies without breaking their budget.
In addition to being a great destination for watching films, Albeniz Cinema is also known for hosting special events throughout the year like concerts or exhibitions related to cinematography, which draw large crowds into its premises every time they take place. This makes it not only one of Malaga’s most iconic landmarks but also one of its liveliest spots where you can find culture enthusiasts from around the world gathering together under one roof.
