Cinemas of Rome
Posted August 24, 2010 to photo album "Cinemas of Rome"
Italians not only dress in style, but also go to stylish cinemas in Rome. Here are a few.
Slide 3: Cinema dei Piccoli
Built in 1934, Cinema dei Piccoli was originally named Cinema Topolino––“Topolino” being the name of Mickey Mouse in Italian. Designed by Alfredo Annibali, the cinema was set in the middle of Rome’s Villa Borghese park and was so small that it used a bed sheet for a screen and a Pathe-Baby 9.5mm projector. Indeed it is in the Guinness Book of World Records as “the Smallest Purpose-Built Cinema in Operation.”
