I go to the movies a lot and I love going alone. From my house Downtown to CineSesc it’s three kilometers – a “little walk” up on Consolação street that is worthwhile. This movie theatre has always captivated me since I moved to São Paulo and began to visit cinema rooms.
When I got to know it before the refurbishment it went though, it was built in a very old fashion and got a really old feel to it. It was like going through a portal that took me back to the past.
The coffee at that time wasn’t the espresso we have today and they served it in little plastic cups. There was something melancholic about it which I enjoyed very much.
Before each session I sit on that little bar that stays inside the room, from where you can also watch the movie.
Sometimes I catch three movie sessions in one go, that’s how much I like CineSesc. It’s my favorite movie theatre.
