Almeria, Cinema Land
There in the 50s, the city of Almeria became the scene of the first films shot in this province. Thus, for example, outside “La Llamada de África” were filmed in its port and the Old Town Square of the capital was chosen to perform some scenes of the French film “Ojo por Ojo”. These films, without a doubt, caught the attention of the greats of the cinema who already, without shame, turned over in the Almeria landscape, filming in the 60s the so-called big blockbusters. “El Cid” by Anthony Mann, opened the ban, which was followed by what would be one of the great classics of contemporary cinema, “Lawrence of Arabia”, in which some scenes shot in the Nicolás Salmerón Park appear. “Cleopatra”, with the great beauty of Liz Taylor.”Mando perdido”, which used the Old Square of Almeria for the entrances of the troops in Cavas and Regocijos or Tenero Iribarne streets for the occupation scenes, or “Mercenarios sin gloria”of Michael Caine, also happened in time. The entrance of the allies in Messina, using the Cathedral Square, or the entrance of General Patton in Palermo, a scene shot around the Alcazaba, in the movie that bears his name, also marked a before and after. 
More recent films that use scenarios of the capital, it should be noted, “Nuca digas nunca jamás”, from the James Bond saga, shot, in part, in the Alcazaba or “Indiana Jones” and “La última cruzada”, for which Almanzor Street and School of Arts and Crafts were used, which became a palace of the Sultan of the Hatay Republic, with Rolls Royce included. 
El Dorado and the cinema meet in the mid-60s when a cinema outdoor locator, named Eddie Fowlie, found an ideal place for the filming of the Laurence of Arabia on the Carboneras dry river, where the city of Hacaba was built that would originally go to Jordan. From that moment on, Eddie decided that his place of residence would be Carboneras. 
The Decoration of El Dorado focuses on Director David Lean, creator of such award-winning titles as Laurence of Arabia, Dr. Zhivago, Ryan's Daughter ...
