A good way to survive the utterly hot weather in Barcelona is going to the cinema, as well as going to the beach (of course!). In summer it’s great to enjoy in a fresh and relaxed environment while watching a good movie for a couple of hours. Today we offer you a list with the best cinemas with original version movies in Barcelona. Lights, camera, action!

Throughout Barcelona there are plenty of VO cinemas (original version). These cinemas show films in the language they were originally produced in – most of the times it is English, but other languages are quite frequent too, such as French or German. Here you have the list of the best VO cinemas in Barcelona.
