A Cinema for Tarapoto!

At last, the silver screen looks set to arrive in Tarapoto (in Morales, to be precise). According to the Interactiva Radio website, construction of the new 1,000-seater cinema is nearing completion, with the doors set to open to the public in early 2012.

“The business initiative will use digital technology, incorporating 3D projections, acoustic amphitheatre and a giant screen,” says Interactive Radio. It will be located within the Club Posada de Morales, a space typically reserved for weddings and other functions.

According to the article, Edilberto Laban, the owner of Club Posada de Morales, has invested more than US$300,000 in the project. I assume that includes the cost of a decent air conditioning system — otherwise, we could end up with a large and surprisingly comfortable oven.

I’m hoping it will turn out well; I’m a big fan of the cinema, so this is news of knee-trembling proportions. I might head down to Morales and ask for a sneak peek — I’ll let you know if I manage to get inside.
