Cinema Rif

Cinema in Tangier

Image by Jess Cherkaoui Lonely Planet

The brightest light on Tangier’s cultural scene, Cinema Rif is a combination art-house cinema, cafe and archive, and the focal point for anything to do with film. Young locals come to soak up the ambience and use the free wi-fi in this fine, well-restored art-deco building. It shows both indie and mainstream films, mostly American, Moroccan, Spanish or French (with Spanish and American films typically dubbed into Arabic).
