On the pier of the hammer have been filmed spectacular scenes of sea battles. The overproduction of Samuel Bronston Captain Jones (1958) needed more than 15 days to shoot scenes that included boardings, explosions and fires, and shipwrecks. In Mutiny in the Defiant was represented the confrontation of the British and French fleets in Napoleon's time.

The old Lonja: the building was the center of the city of Puerto Royal, where much of the story told in the son of Captain Blood (1961), entirely shot in Dénia.

The Cervantes Esplanade: the author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes landed in Dénia after spending seven years in captivity in Algiers. In 1966 the international production Cervantes was filmed, which chose the port of Dénia precisely to represent the land contrary to that of historical reality. Dénia was for the cinema the Algiers of his years in prison. Cervantes was played by the German actor Horst Buchholz, and in the main roles were the Spanish Paco Rabal and the Italian Gina Lollobrigida, all with outstanding interventions in the filming made to Dénia. The entire area of ​​the current Climate Monument was occupied by a huge outdoor market where Sean Flynn stars in a fun and acrobatic sword duel in Captain Blood's son. Flynn disappeared years later in Vietnam, where he seems to have been killed on the Cambodian border when he was a professional photographer.

The Circus Theater, inaugurated in 1895 and reconverted in 1967 in Cine Condado, was the first local to project cinema. Up to three cinematographers coincided in this street in the middle of the last century.
