Time Out on Cine Manto

Running from June of the end of September, this tree-shaded open-air space is part-cinema, part-botanic gardens. Aside from a big screen, it boasts a bunch of friendly cats, a pond full of koi carp, goldfish, waterlilies, and a 200-year-old cactus. Seriously, what more could you ask for? It’s like when we used to see movies in 3D, except the third dimension here is furry and will paw you halfway through the film. There are 180 seats in its arbor and a restaurant terrace to camp out on for a mid-screening souvlaki. The programme leans toward Hollywood crowd pleasers. It’d be a tough crowd not just to be pleased to be here.
