History: In October of 1999 we inaugurate La Enana Marrón, this theatre wants to be a meeting point of independent and experimental tendencies, national or foreign unknown in Spain.
This cinema includes a 35 mm, 16 mm and super8 projectors, where we screen personal cinema, sometimes artisan, always outside of commercial circuits.
The premieres of unknown films alternates with thematic programmes, retrospectives of avant-garde’s not seen in the screens of our city. It’s the only theatre in Madrid that offers independent programmes that are national premieres, of shorts, features, documentaries and fictions in all cinematographic formats.
The direct exchange of the spectator with someone linked to the presented piece (programmer, director, actor,.. etc.) and the exhibitions about the film programmed are our proposal to try to break with the classic model of a theatre were one comes, see and goes.
