Tour description

Do you know where Thesis was filmed? Where did Álex de la Iglesia choose to premiere My Big Night? Would you recognize where the bizarre robbery of The Witches of Zugarramurdi took place? Or what flirtatious plaza was dressed in desire and made Lucía enjoy sex? Get your ticket and get ready to discover the secrets of the seventh art in a very special set: the streets of Madrid.

Cinema emerged at the beginning of the 20th century as an opportunity to capture movement and generate emotions in the viewer. Painting and photography suddenly move! Theater can be recorded! At that moment, beautiful Madrid becomes an indispensable setting and its buildings become an obligatory prop. But we will not only talk about the past and history, since the capital is a very lively city that hosts more events related to cinema every day. Did you know that Cines Callao puts on live performances of series like Stranger Things in the square itself? On this guided tour we will tour the filming sets of memorable films such as The Day of the Beast or Open Your Eyes, we will follow in the footsteps of Lina Morgan, Almodóvar or Fernando Fernán Gómez through the streets of Madrid and we will try to delve into the creative mind of Garci , Buñuel, Berlanga, Álex de la Iglesia or Pilar Miró, who imagined their stories from this city and projected them from here to all of us.

 

Madrid, a movie city

The love story between our city and cinema is as fruitful as it is endless, but since this Journey to Nowhere must begin somewhere, we will meet at the legendary Renoir Plaza de España Cinemas . We will get to know our particular Walk of Fame , where artists like Antonio Banderas or Concha Velasco have stars, because there is life beyond Hollywood! Next, our tour will stop us at Ocho y Medio , a bookstore and cafeteria that acts as a meeting place for film lovers. We will reach the Plaza de las Comendadoras , where Lucía enjoyed sex and later became the meeting point in Madres parallelales , or the Plaza 2 de mayo , the nerve center where the Madrid scene originated and from where Pedro Almodóvar began to develop his cinema with Pepi, Luci, Bom and other ordinary girls . Important stops are El Palentino , cult bar of director Álex de la Iglesia, or what has been, is and will be the main film setting in Madrid: the Gran Vía …, do you remember Eduardo Noriega on a deserted street in Abre los ojos ? ? We recommend that you keep them wide open because our steps will take us to the Callao Cinemas , the greatest exponent of Art Deco in the capital, and to Puerta del Sol , where we will tour the area where the thieves from the robbery in The Witches tried to escape! Zugarramurdi ! We will seek refuge in the headquarters of the Spanish Film Library , we will pass through the Sala Equis , which keeps a fascinating story inside, ending our tour next to another essential theater in Madrid: the Cine Doré , a beautiful building with a beautiful façade that currently functions as the Film Library exhibition hall.
