Cibeles de Cine returns to CentroCentro's Glass Gallery for another summer season with over 70 films, including essential classics, cult movies from the 80s and 90s, films for the whole family and the latest hits from this season, most of which will be screened in their original language.
One of the most exciting new features this year is the tribute that Cibeles de Cine will pay to 20th Century Fox, with a series that will look back on the films produced by the legendary Hollywood studio, screening iconic movies like Cleopatra, All about Eve, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Seven Year Itch, Patton, The Sound of Music, The Hustler and Alien. The big screen at Cibeles de Cine will feature everything from the biggest winners at the last Oscars (Green Book, The Favourite, A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk) to current blockbusters (The Mule, Rocketman). The programme will also make room for arthouse films that have won acclaim in recent months, including Spanish films (Pain and Glory, Everybody Knows, The Realm, Who Will Sing to You, Carmen and Lola) as well as international films (Girl, Cold War, The Sisters Brothers, The Fall of the American Empire, Dogman). For nostalgia lovers and fans of 80s and 90s cult cinema, there will be screenings of films like Scarface, The Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction. On Saturdays, the programme will be dedicated to the whole family, with films like the latest version of Dumbo, which will be shown dubbed in Spanish. In addition, throughout Cibeles de Cine audiences will be able to take part in special activities and theme events held on a regular basis, relating to the films in the programme.
Cibeles de Cine summer cinema can hold up to 700 people and features high-definition imaging as well as sound, achieved with wireless headphones that ensure a first-rate immersive screening experience. It also boasts a Bar & Lounge area decorated with film props and furniture used while shooting many of Spain’s most important films.
Flore Maquin Exhibition
In addition to the film programme, visitors will also be able to enjoy an overhead exhibition featuring a selection of colourful pop-style film-themed portraits created by French artist Flore Maquin. At just 28 years old, this young lady who is passionate about pop culture, design and film is already a key figure in the world of digital art and illustration. She has worked for Universal Pictures, Paramount Channel, The Hollywood Reporter and the Cannes Festival. Flore Maquin designed the posters for the last two editions of the French festival; in 2018 her poster was inspired by Jean-Luc Godard’s film Pierrot the Madman, and at the 2019 edition it paid tribute to trailblazing filmmaker Agnès Varda, who recently passed away. The exhibition is produced by Clorofila Digital.
Organised by CentroCentro and designed and produced by mk2 and its events agency, Sunset Cinema, the last edition of Cibeles de Cine was attended by over 33,000 cinemagoers, and it has become one of the city’s most eagerly-awaited summer events. mk2 is a film company created in 1974 in Paris which has had a presence in Spain since 2014, when it acquired the largest cinema chain in Andalusia, Cinesur, before opening the mk2 cinema Palacio de Hielo, in Madrid, and Sunset Cinema, a cinematic events agency. mk2 advocates cinema that takes a critical and unique view of the world, while questioning the way films are made. It aspires to move people and arouse their emotions: making audiences laugh, cry, dream and reflect, while also questioning the individual and collective forces that drive the world and the filmmaker's role in society.
Cibeles de Cine works in collaboration with Lamucca and Clorofila Digital. It also works with El País, TCM and Fotogramas, as its official media partners, and with Time Out Madrid and Yorokobu, as supporting media partners. On Sundays, the programme will feature the El País Film Series, devoted to classic films, as well as TCM Nights, which focuses on cult movies, and the Time Out Sessions, organised in collaboration with Time Out Madrid.
