Another building characteristic of the place is the Cinema Rif. Built in 1948 under the name of Cinema Rex, it was reformed in 2007 by a group of artists in order to welcome the head office of the Cinematheque de Tanger. Reference institution in the city, it has become a one of a kind cultural centre throughout North Africa.
In addition to the projection of current and classic films, Cinema Rif offers a great variety of cultural events. For example, you can see actors and attend concerts. Kids also receive teacher training.
The archives of Cinema Rif, which count over a thousand audiovisual documents, are the memory of the Moroccan, North African and the whole Middle East cinema. A refreshment room and a terrace pleasantly welcome the regular clients as well as the tourists who come for tea and to breathe the atmosphere of this place.
