Hola everyone! It is now 5 years since Chris Green and I persuaded OCine to show films in English. It took us 14 months in all to get the first film shown, "Robin Hood" starring Russell Crowe. 206 people turned up that evening & some even had to sit on the stairs as no one expected such a fantastic turnout. Since then OCine has been showing VOSE films twice a month for us. Maybe because many people watch films online legally or illegally, maybe because the novelty has worn off, the numbers of people supporting OCine is dwindling, at least those who are non-Spaniards as the number of Spanish coming to VOSE films is increasing. Together with Chris Green and since she left us, I have negotiated with OCine to have the latest films in our language and have then sent out almost 420 emails each month. I don't mind doing this if there is sufficient support from you as I also enjoy seeing up to date films in English. However, it seems at the moment that many have decided it is too much trouble to come to the cinema and watch films on the big screen when you can watch them on a small screen from the armchair. Such a pity. This month we have 2 films which have had good reviews:
