“When you need to catch a movie, head to “el cine.” Cinemex is a stadium seating movie theater in the local mall called La Luciernaga. By American and Canadian standards, the ticket prices and concession stand are very economical. You can see a first run movie on a Friday night in a great theater for about $40 pesos, which is about $2.25 USD. That is per person! And they often have both Spanish and English language movies.”
