One of my favorite things to do in Nicaragua is to take in a movie. One might think that the movies would all be in Spanish, with Latin actors and story lines set in Central or South America. Not so at hate Galerias, one of several shopping centers in Managua.
When I have a few hours to kill, I'll check out the movie list (there are 8 screens) and see if there is a convenient time for a VIP showing of one of the first run movies that comes out about two days later than in the states. All presented in their original language (English, usually) with Spanish subtitles. So I get a first run viewing of a brand new Hollywood production, and get a Spanish lesson at the same time. Usually, the language in the subtitles is not near as bad as the actual script, i.e. the word "maldicion" is used for many of the 'expletives' in the movie. Simply translated, "maldicion" basically means 'bad language'. There are more literal translations not to be used in blogs!!!
Oh, yes....why the VIP movie? Big leather seats, with enough space for the largest torso, reclining back with only about 30 other people in the audience (you select a reserve seat when you get your ticket), and you have a waiter who'll start you a tab for sandwiches, sushi, hot dogs, or other cuisine, along with beers, sodas, and even wine. Entry is about $8 for the movie, and you can 'pitch till you win' on the beverages. And they take you credit card right at the seat.
