    at/in: location

    "at" is used for precise point. In your test, you have written: "The market's in the front of the old cinema". Why not "at" ? It's a precise point.

    Welcome, reglisse.

    If you use at to descibe the market's location, you'd be placing the market in(side) the old cinema. The two would share the same location.

    All the best.
