Denver-area Spanish-language movies range from independent film to “It” en español

The lines for tickets and palomitas (popcorn) move quickly here at Cinema Latino — the only theater in town dedicated to providing a true Latin American-style movie theater experience.

Film brings people closer together, and for some of greater Denver’s Latino population, that can mean seeking out the places that screen films in Spanish, or ones that are dubbed or subtitled.

Given that 30 percent of Denver identifies as Hispanic and 1 in 10 of Colorado residents are immigrants themselves, popularizing Spanish language and Latino film here just makes sense. That said, the struggle to find such films is real. Occasionally, a theater (like the Sie Film Center) might show a popular, Spanish-language film. Something by Pedro Almodovar, perhaps. But sometimes people just want to watch what everyone else is watching. Like “Despicable Me 3” … but en español.
