MIJAS’ free summer cinema programme is set to return throughout July and August, screening famous family films across three venues throughout the area.
From 6 July, residents will be able to enjoy the free projections organised by the Department for Young People. Councillor Tamara Vera explained, “once again we are putting on an activity that all locals can enjoy,” adding, “Mijas Cinema reaches all parts of the town with varied programming for all audiences, which are free and open to all.”
The events will take place across La Cala de Mijas’ Playa Torreon, Mijas Pueblo’s Municipal Auditorium and the Parque Andalucia and Maria Zambrano beginning on 6 July in La Cala. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy outdoor nights and films including “The Secret Life of Pets,”, “Kung Fu Panda,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” amongst others.
Kike Mesa, the manager of the organizing company Kandale, explains, “I like to think of cinema as a social and family outing, it is increasingly watched in different ways, but what is important is to be able to share it with family and even better when it is free and in locations like these.”
In addition to the cinema nights, Mijas’ Department for Young People is encouraging the town’s youth to keep up to date with the various activities on offer over the summer, through Facebook at Juventud Mijas, Twitter (@juventud_mijas) or Instragram (@juventud_mijas). Young people can also keep abreast of all the news and activities through the Youth WhatsApp group by sending a message to 606 41 76 09 with the text “I want to receive information from youth.”
Ms Vera explains she want to “encourage our locals and visitors to participate in this activity and keep an eye out because we will continue to promote numerous initiatives throughout the summer for our young people and all locals and we are focused on providing family friendly events.”
