Sala Equis is a set of spaces collected in the structure of the old cinema Duque de Alba. The idea encompassed the traditional version of the cinema together with other activities around this main function.

Plantea has shaped this concept in Sala Equis. Where there was a room with an amphitheater for 300 people, with a small ambigu and an entrance through a passage under El Imparcial, there are now four different spaces.- a multifunctional gallery, a bar under the screen, a movie theater and an interstitial space in the entrance hall with benches and tables.
