The Spanish love to dub their movies, but most people just want to hear the original actors speak! Luckily you can watch the original English movies in cinema here, just not every day. In Yelmo Cines the Tuesday is reserved for VOSE (Version Original Subtilada en Español), meaning you’ll be able to watch the original movie with Spanish subtitles. If there’s a premiere of a very big movie, that one will usually also be shown as VOSE on the day of the premiere.
Cinemas showing original English movies (VOSE)
These days it’s not that easy to find a cinema that shows the original English movie with Spanish subtitles (VOSE). The cinemas below have movies available, but no guarantees that they will show that one particular movie you are looking for!

Cine Yelmo (Las Arenas) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a highly-regarded movie theater with a lot to offer. It’s known for being well-maintained, and the staff is quick and friendly, so you won’t spend much time waiting in line.
On Tuesdays, they show movies with English subtitles, which is great for international audiences, while the rest of the week, the films are in Spanish.
