Cinemas in Medellin
Going to the movies is a very popular past-time for Colombians. Almost every shopping mall has a cinema with several theaters.
Generally, the movies here are mostly American blockbusters. Movies are generally released at the same time as they are internationally, but not always. Most movies are in their original language with Spanish subtitles, although kids movies are generally always dubbed. It’s always worth checking first before buying your ticket. It’s possible to select your preferred seats when buying your ticket at the counter. You may also reserve your ticket online without paying, however, you must arrive 30 minutes or more before the film commences or the seats will be released to someone else.
