If you are in Barcelona without speaking Spanish, you can face some difficulties by finding the right cinema. Most movies in Spanish television and in the cinemas are synchronized or dubbed and not in their original English language.
However, Barcelona as a metropolitan city offers also movies in the original version with Spanish subtitles. If you see V.O. (Version originally) or V.O.S. (Version Original Subtitulada) it means that the movies will be shown in the original version and not in Spanish.
This article is a guideline to find movies in their original version in order to find the right places to enjoy a good movie.
