Also movie-eaters can engage in social media! Iván Barredo cares for its younger audience by extending the online presence of the Cines Verdi beyond its internet homepage, to Facebook, and even Tuenti- a Spanish social network for young people in their twenties. It would be sad not to tell the entire world how valuable it is to watch a restored copy of Lola Montes in its original version.

Following the screening of Kick-Ass, the Moviepilot crew – sticking to the age-old tradition – decamped to a nearby bar to discuss the film – a vitally important element of the cinematic ritual. After much jubilant collective reviewing, we all agreed that the film ‘kicked ass’.
