Every Monday at 20:00 a different appointment with the best cinema in the original version. Four cycles every month for all tastes: lovers of theater and dance, addicted to the "worst" cinema of all time, devotees of immortal cinema or one who shouts against barbarism. Cinema in good company in El Hueco.
