If you are tired from endless walking or hung-over from a big fiesta, rest your weary bones in front of an English speaking film- there are plenty of places to do so. The Cinema (or cine) is also a great way to spend one of Barcelona´s few rainy days without spending too much money.

Here they are relatively cheap, offer student discount with the appropriate card and some have a discount day-usually Mondays. Instead of looking for Tightass Tuesday, perhaps try to remember…moderately priced Mondays? It doesn´t have the same ring to it but it could save you from rocking up on the wrong day and having to pay full price!

When searching for a film in a language other than Spanish or Catalan look for VO or version original next to the title.

  • Filmoteca is a government owned cinema that shows alternative/arthouse and older films as well as hosting festivals. The website is difficult to navigate as it´s in Catalan but it´s so cheap that you could always just try your luck by showing up.
    €3.00 – normal ticket
  • Avinguda de Sarria, 33


  • Cine Meilies is another hotspot for those who like it a little more alternative, showing quirky films, you´ll never catch the likes of Twilight or American Pie at this cute little two screen cinema.
    €6.00 – normal ticket
  • Calle de Vilarroel, 102

And a couple more for the blockbuster films:

Hola! My name is Becky. I´m yet another Australian expat who fell for the beautiful mistress we like to call Barcelona and stayed far, far longer than once intended. I throw myself into the cities events, bars, clubs, shops etc, with reckless abandon to bring you these reviews. It´s all for you! ...Or is it just an excuse to party and spend lots of money without feeling guilty?... Either way, read up on some of my favorite ways to see this exciting and eclectic city. Happy travels and welcome to BCN!
