    This looks like homework.

    If it isn't, tell us what you think first.

    Not at all. It has always been a nightmare to me this "the"

    My try in red:



    After a BA degree in History at Barcelona University or "at the Barcelona University"

    She was nominated at Goya Awards or "at the Goya Awards"

    The film was introduced at 58th Berlin International Film Festival or "at the 58th Berlin International Film Festival"

    The film was released at Cannes International Film Festival or "at the Cannes International Film Festival"

    She inaugurates the exhibition at Santa Ṃnica Art Center or "at the Santa Ṃnica Art Center"

    She took on the content in Spanish Pavilion or "in the Spanish Pavilion"

    He performed at Romea Theatre in Barcelona or "at the Romea Theatre in Barcelona"

    He was interviewed in Catalan tv magazine ‘Les 1000 i una.’ or "in the Catalan tv magazine ‘Les 1000 i una.’"

    And keeping the Spanish word Teatro (Theatre):

    This piece to be released at Teatro Villarroel for Barcelona Grec'99 Festival or "at the Teatro Villarroel for the Barcelona Grec'99 Festival"


    My proposals have more of intuition than certainty. It's my nemesis

    Good effort!

    I would just change #5 and #9 (if they'd been numbered).

    I would be very interested to hear anyone's reasons for the use/non-use of 'the' here or elsewhere. Is there any rhyme or reason? The above examples would serve nicely as 'casos en punto'.
