Now Playing! Around Banderas Bay

From ultra-modern cinemas with up to 14 screens playing first-run films in English [with Spanish sub-titles] to combination coffee and movie houses playing art, international and independent films from over the years, going to the movies in Puerto Vallarta is a lot cheaper than back home . . . and a great way to learn a little Spanish, too.
