Fodor's Expert Review Filmoteca de Catalunya
The Filmoteca de Catalunya occupies a brutalist-style edifice designed by Josep Lluís Mateo. With plush seats, wide screens, and a state-of-the-art sound system, it’s a film buff's paradise. Most movies are screened in VOS (though the original language is not always English) and are programmed in "cycles." The program is always serious and approached academically, whether the focus is musicals, film noir, or documentaries. The colorful café is a great spot for a vermut or some tapas, and has tables out on the square.
