A small art house cinema which embraces three screens, shows movies in the original version with Spanish subtitles in 2D and 3D formats. The cinema is mainly specialized in new releases unless it devotes a week to a specific theme. The pricing system is a little bit wired: it is €7 for an adult ticket, though on Wednesdays and for people over 65 it is €6,50. Most probably managers have their own reasoning for this kind of pricing. The ticket may be bought both at the cinema and online.

This cinema is an ultimate experience for a movie lover. I don't wanna say much more about it, you just have to go and see for yourself. Comfortable seats where you could forget about the time, brilliant sound and picture quality and a huge popcorn basket would add up to your experience. One important tip, if it's a movie premiere or a weekend session, you could consider showing up early because the tickets appear to not have any number and you could basically take any seat you'd manage. Early bird gets the worm, as easy as that. You could check the agenda and buy tickets online on the official website http://www.phenomena-experience.com/. The agenda represents a mix of the latest movies with the classic and vintage, sometimes also offering the most popular animated movies.
To get there easily check first its location, there's a couple of metro stops nearby C/ Sant Antoni Maria Claret, 168
