Original Version Cinema´s in Barcelona
It is a sad fact the the vast majority of films shown in Barcelona are dubbed. As teachers
we morn the chance for real listening opportunities for our students, but apart from that I
HATE dubbed films. I always want to see a film in its original version, with Spanish/Catalan
subtitles ok, but I want to hear the original actor's voice. I'm sorry, but George Clooney
speaking Catalan is NOT the same!
Here are some cinemas that do V.O (Original Version) films:
Calle Salvador Espiriu, 61
El Centre de la Vila
08005 Barcelona, España.
Metro: Ciutadella Vila Olimpica (Yellow Line, L4)
Cines Verdi Barcelona
Calle Verdi, 32
08012 Barcelona, España.
Metro: Fontana (Green Line, L3)
Calle Floridablanca, 135
08015 Barcelona, España.
Metro: Estació Sant Antoni (Purple Line, L2)
But I particularly wanted to mention the sadly lesser known
Filmoteca de Catalunya
Plaça de Salvador Seguí, 1,
08001 Barcelona, España
Liceu (M: L3)
This has all original version films from all over the world. It shows some classics, some
films you've never heard of and art films. If you're a film buff it's the place for you. It also
only costs 3€ a ticket. I bought my foreign art film obsessed husband a year long free
entrance ticket last year, 90€ and he could go to every film shown if he wanted. (He
doesn't, I'm relieved to say!)
