This 15 screen complex is located just behind the newly developed Olímpica waterfront. It sits inside a shopping mall and is the only theatre in Barcelona that consistently plays foreign movies in their original language, with English predominating.
The theatres are high quality, with no smoking allowed. Reserved seating is enforced by ushers. The latest Hollywood releases can be found here. Late shows start around 12:15am and are often movies less popular with Spanish audiences, but of greater interest to cinema buffs. A fast food court right outside the theatre makes grabbing a snack or drink before the movie easy (if you don’t mind the typical fast food quality).
I like the printed schedules of all their films for the current week and also the fact sheets about each film (in Spanish only). You can pick those up at the theater or on their website. Movies tend to start exactly on time here, but are preceded by endless commercials, so get here early, especially to get the better seats as the theatres are not big.
