Poster shopping around the world, part 3: Barcelona

Barcelona is not only notable for its great Gaudi architecture and proximity to the Sitges Film Festival, it also has one of the best movie poster shops in Europe! Groucho y Yo have a nice storefront in an accessible part of the city, and also sell on eBay under the name fantomas38000. They have a nice variety of items from all over the world, but are particularly noteworthy for a well-organized selection of European and Mexican trash along with regular horror from Hammer and others. Here are some pics from a visit a few years ago...

I was even allowed to take a peek in the warehouse where thousands upon thousands of posters, lobbycards, pressbooks and other items are neatly stored!
