For some cinema purists, watching movies in their original language is a must. Luckily, you can find your pick of Original Version cinemas throughout Barcelona. Whether you live near the mountains or by the sea, there is probably a cinema close by playing the movie you are craving to watch in its un-dubbed version.

Renoir Floridablanca

Renoir Floridablanca is a seven-screen cinema located in Sant Antoni that shows both indie movies and blockbusters in their original language. It is popular with moviegoers due to its convenient location right in the center of the city and the variety of movies on offer, so be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time in order to skip long lines.

Renoir Floridablanca, Calle Floridablanca, 135, Barcelona, Spain, +34 932 28 93 93



With only two screens, this charming art-house shows the best auteur and classical films. It’s a great pick if you’d rather spend your afternoon watching a classic Antonioni movie instead of the latest Hollywood production.

Meliès, Carrer de Villarroel, 102, Barcelona, Spain, +34 934 51 00 51



Boliche is a lovely little movie theater devoted to the promotion of independent cinema. Much like the Meliès art-house, this four-screen movie theater is a delightful place to binge on some awesome indie cinema in its original language.

Icaria Yelmo Cineplex

Yelmo Cineplex is probably the biggest Original Language cinema in Barcelona. Located right by the beach, this 15-screen movie theater shows mostly Spanish and international blockbusters. Since it is inside a shopping mall, you can make the most of your movie date and indulge in a shopping spree!
