Movie Theatre
“It was built in 1923 and is today used both for screening material from the Film Archive and as a venue for activities for promotional purposes such as talks, seminars, presentations and so on.It first opened in 1912, with the name Salón Doré. In its early years the Cine Doré enjoyed great success. It later lost its appeal and was converted into a local neighbour cinema, finally closing in 1963. In 1982, it was selected as the permanent screening venue for the Spanish Film Archive. It re-opened in 1989 after a careful restoration in which care was taken to conserve the original Modernist architectural and decorative elements, and a new screening room was added. Today, one of the rooms recreates the earlier cinema in the first Salón Doré. During the summer months there is also an additional open-air cinema on the premises.”

Restaurant
“Achuri is everyone's favorite "anti-fascist" bar/restaurant in Lavapies. It has a Basque / Anarchist / generally leftist vibe, and it is committed to respecting its customers. The restaurant is vegetarian friendly, but ask which dishes listed on the handwritten weekday lunch menu are, in fact, vegetarian.”
