Cine Sí - Mainstream No

Backlit Shop Sign of the Cine Si Bookstore in San Telmo Buenos Aires, Argentina
This unobtrusive backlit sign indicates the location of a specialty shop of supreme interest for movie fanatics, cine-lovers and those who live to the cinema. Cine Sí is a store in San Telmo that is completely dedicated to cinema and visual arts. It has a highly specialized non-standard variety of international and local movies, magazines, books and other printed material. The movie selection available to buy and rent is rather limited but assorted with love and enthusiasm by a team of young people. They even rent equipment for film-making and photography.

The photo is beautiful. I think this is an unusual shop...so far as I know we have nothing like that here...so very interesting!

That's dramatic and powerful. We might have a look when we're in the area in a few months.

Your photo is stunning. I wonder what genre the store caters to. You know you're in a big city when there are shops for such specialty markets. ;-)

This brings to mind a question, are they making any good movies anymore?

I'd have to agree with B Squared on this one.

Still, an original sign it is.

Being a movie buff, I could see spending hours in this shop. Great photo.
