Independent and art house films at Zumzeig Cinema
Carrer de Béjar 53
We are going to get straight to it, Zumzeig is a new cinema due to open this week. Built entirely from the ground up, this space will screen a diverse range of non-commercial films such as American independent films, documentaries, art house films, and video art all in the original languages with subtitles. The new hall, which will have 70 seats and bistro, will exhibit an average of 5 weekly movies distributed in about 20 countries.
Located just a short 5 minutes walk from Plaça d’Espanya, it is easy to get to. Cinema has Zumzeig acoustic performance and sound of the highest quality and with 3 projectors digital (DCP), 35mm and 16mm. Zumzeig Cinema is a space built entirely from scratch in the basement of a building in the neighborhood of Sants, Bejar Street, 53. The public opening will take place on Friday, October 4 at 18.00. Here are the first films to be screened at the cinema, ‘L’encerclement’ Richard Brouillette (Canada, Zumzeig Distribution ), ‘Dragonslayer’ Tristan Patterson (USA, CineBinario Films), ’L'Âge Atomique’ Héléna Klotz (France, Mosaic Films), ‘The Deluded’ of Jonas Trueba (Spain) and ‘Nostalgia for the Light “by Patricio Guzman (France / Germany / Chile, The Sea Films). Expect more diverse cinema reflecting political movements, offbeat aesthetics or complex themes all expressed through the moving image. We say, bravo!
