Cine Yara

14 Mar. 2018

If you’re a movie buff and want to see a film in Cuba, then check out Havana’s most famous cinema: Cine Yara. On a busy corner of Vedado across from the Habana Libre Hotel and the famous Coppelia Ice Cream Parlour, this cinema is truly a Cuban icon. It was once called the Warner before arriving at its final, post-revolutionary name in 1960: the Yara. Once seated, take a look around the theatre. The Yara’s 1650-seat hall used to host variety shows as well as performances by famous Cuban and Latin American artists. Many popular Cuban musical groups still perform at the Yara, and the cinema screens world football championships. Try to make it to the Yara during December, when it becomes one of the important venues for the International Festival of the new Latin American Cinema.
