Theatre in Culebra

Theatre in Culebra

This charming little theatre (the one and only) in Culebra is run by the library. Wholly a private affair, there is no public funding, they show four movies a week. Wednesday eve is independant film night, Friday eve’s are contempory films shown in English with Spanish subtitles, Saturdays at 1 pm is family movie time and Saturday eve is Spanish film with english subtitle. The theatre is located in one of the two trailers that makes up the library and is quite splendid with proper theater seating and decor donated by a large commercial cinema when they remodeled. The screen is a large plasma television and viewing the films is a pleasant and intimate experience. Most features run $3 although occasionally a benevolent benefactor in town rents out the whole place and gives free admittance. We saw the independent film, Born into Brothels last night which I had never seen. If you have not yet viewed it I highly recommend this documentary, well worth the 84 minutes of your life to experience.
