El Penulo is a must visit every time we're in Mexico City. There are smaller branches in the Zona Rosa and Condesa, but the Roma store is the granddaddy of them all, offering not only a sensational array of books and videos, but an excellent cafe/restaurant and a rooftop performance space that plays host to readings, concerts, and (best of all) silent film screenings with live musical accompaniment. For international cinephiles, there are few better places in the city to stock up on Mexican and Latin American DVDs and Blu-Rays. It's easy to spend a half-day here just browsing the selections; fortunately, excellent sustenance is right inside the store.
