Cinema in Costa del Sol can be narrated through its star hotels. Not only the ones showing on their facades, but also the ones that have dream movie dreams in their film-like suites. Essential to establish the headquarters for filming the movies, the case of Malaga establishments is singular because they not only have bid – and they still do – to host Brigitte Bardot, Boris Karloff, Walt Disney, Maureen O’Hara, John Malkovich or Antonio Banderas among their terraces and pools, but they have also competed among them to host scenes from their movies. Therefore, this route allows you to relive those scenes to have an snack in the same place where Raquel Welch arrived in a donkey taxi, go through the reception where Kirk Douglas asked for his key or lounge in that bar counter that got to be famous around the world for the scandal that led to Frank Sinatra in prison in Malaga. This route deserves to reserve the five-star seat.

‘Scent of Mystery’ was the first film to use the innovative Smell-O-Vision system, which was intended to transform the cinema after the arrival of sound and colour. Now, the novelty was the aromas that audiences could smell in cinemas as they appeared in the plot. For its premiere in 1960, three cinemas were adapted in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, with an expensive installation that released the fragrances through ducts located under each seat. But according to the chronicle of the magazine ‘Variety’, the expulsion of the smells was accompanied by an annoying whistle when crossing the tubes, while the essences were mixing one after another and the atmosphere inside the room turned into pestilence. An absolute failure unavoidable even with the presence of Elizabeth Taylor in the cast.
