Ole! Watch Spanish cinema series at the drive-in and virtually

Film lovers, are you missing your foreign films? The Miami Film Festival isn’t until March, but you can get your fill of Spanish films during the weeklong Recent Spanish Cinema Series from Oct. 22-29.

It kicks off and ends with drive-in events at the Miami-Dade Youth Fair Expo site, which has for months now served as a drive-in venue. However, films will be available virtually from Oct. 23-28.

To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter and visit our Facebook group page

The virtual showings are nice because once you purchase your $12 ticket, you have 72 hours to stream the film.

Choose from these films:

  • “Schoolgirls,” an award-winning film by Director Pilar Palomero, a coming-of-age story set in the 1990s about an introverted Catholic school girl from a small town and the adventures that ensure when she meets a new classmate from the big city of Barcelona.
  • “The Day of the Beast,” a cult classic by Director Alex de la Iglesia about a Basque priest who believes he can prevent the apocalypse with the help a heavy metal fan and occult television show host.

  • “Instant Love,” which tells the tale of a couple whose plan to rekindle their romance leads to an argument and the two people they were set to meet sparking a romance.
  • “The Invisibles,” about the frequent meetings by three women in their 50s and their frustration about mature women becoming invisible.
