    I would like to translate into English "voy al cine las tardes de los lunes y los miércoles" but I don't know if the right preposition is "in" or "on":

    "I go to the cinema on/in Monday and Wednesday afternoons"

    "On" is used for days but "in" would be ok because it refers to "afternoon".

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I go to the movies on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.


    I go to the movies in the afternoon on Mondays and Wednesdays.

    En EE.UU. no decimos "cinema" en este contexto, pero creo que los ingleses sí lo dicen.

    You can also say "I go to the movies on Mondays and Wednesdays in the afternoon."
