hi again<BR>then is there any other store big enough to have a large collection of video tapes and Cds?

There used to be one, but it closed. You may want to try FNAC, a very simmilar store. There's one in El Triangle, next to Plaza Catalunya, and another one at L'Illa, on Diagonal. You may also try the "El Corte Ingles" on Porta de l'Angel.<BR><BR>IMHO, the best is FNAC at L'Illa.

Hi Jean, in paris Fnac offered only movies that were doubled in french. In spain, do they sell movies in original language?

Jean Valjean Jun 28th, 2002 12:51 PM

If they do, I don't think they have a big selection. Everyone in Spain is used to dubbed movies.<BR><BR>If you want to see movies in their original language, you may try going to Icaria Yelmo Cineplex, on Port Olimpic. It is one of the few cinemas in Barcelona that has undubbed movies.<BR><BR>Blockbuster also has a few movies in their original language.<BR><BR>BTW, a movie in its original language is called V.O.S. (Version Original Subtitulada).
