Preambulo returns for 2020 in El Centro Nacional de Cine

El Centro Costarricense de Producción Cinematográfica, más conocido simplemente como “Centro de Cine”, inicia esta semana las proyecciones de su programa “Preámbulo”, con películas de Cuba, Guatemala, España, Panamá y México.

Preambulo works as a specialized cinema, offering films other than commercial theatres; an opportunity to get to know cinematographies that are difficult to access. In addition, it opens a meeting space where attendees will be able to dialogue and get to know each other, share tastes and appreciations.

The Preambulo performances are free of charge and are offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, at 7 p.m.; on Saturdays, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., at the Gómez Miralles Hall, Film Center, located on 11th Street, 9th Avenue, behind the National Insurance Institute.
