Rome | City of Movie Theaters
Rome, with buildings dating back over 2000 years to the heyday of the Roman Empire, is heaven for lovers of great architecture. But in addition to all the historical landmarks to be found around the city, there are also buildings which tell the history of filmgoing in Rome. In a place where architectural grandeur and scale are celebrated, movie palaces thrived, from the Cinema Nuovo Olimpia – where films were first screened in 1898 – onwards throughout the 20th Centiry. The slideshow Cinemas of Rome offers a pictorial tour which takes in some of the most striking movie theaters in the city.
