The best place in the city for local, independent cinema.
The most underground
This is one of the best representatives of Ecuadorian culture, especially in terms of cinema and the city's underground scene. The two screens at the Cine Ochoymedio cinema show a wide range of films and cultural productions, with a strong focus on local, national and Latin American themes. The mission of this cinema is exactly that: to present and safeguard the capital's identity and the identity of the American continent as a whole, promoting work by young artists looking to make a name for themselves in this field. It also hosts theatre productions and all kinds of musical shows, making it ideal for lovers of the most independent culture expressions, without an institutionalised cliché in sight. There's something in the air here that's so immediately captivating, you'll find yourself coming back for more. Take a look at the full programme and feel yourself stepping into a true bastion of creative originality.
