Village Caballito

Village Caballito is a cinema complex in Avenida Rivadavia, one of the principal thoroughfares in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One of the prominent Village Cinemas in the country, it is located in the commercial center of the neighborhood of Caballito, which is near the major intersection of Rivadavia Avenue and Acoyte Avenue. It was designed by Bodas-Miani-Anger and Associates (also known as BMA Architects and Associates) in the year 2004, who had already constructed other cinema resorts such as the Village Recoleta (1999), as well as other Village Cinemas in Avellaneda City (1999), Rosario City (2006) and Mendoza City (2006).

Village Caballito opened on December 7, 2005, and it has three basement car parking areas, a ground floor with two large commercial premises, six levels with a total of nine rooms (cinemas) and one food court. The establishment of Village Caballito started the commercial value of the area where it was built, as it became a local main attraction, rivaling even the commercial center of the neighborhood called Caballito Shopping. It quickly became a cinema complex that attracted tons of families and teenagers.

Village Caballito shares the vibrant, post-modern beauty of the cinema resorts built by Bodas-Miani-Anger and Associates for Village Cinemas. Its facade is an imposing concrete structure decorated with an abstract logo design bearing the name of the huge cinema complex. The interiors of Village Caballito are designed with warm, dark color tones, which are mainly a combination of maroon and dark violet colors with star motifs, and they can be seen in the carpets and walls. The upper floors can be accessed through escalators and elevators, and all of the balcony entries are situated on the ground floor.
