Cinema Fiamma

Built in 1948 and opened in 1949, the Cinema Fiamma was designed by noted architect Marcello Piacentini. Also in the same building was the Fiammetta which seated 215 and screened films in their original language versions. There is also the Club Open Gate which is located in the basement, with its entrance at the side of the building.

The Cinema Fiamma was still open in 1991 as a single screen cinema with seating for 800, located in orchestra and balcony levels. It is now a triple screen cinema with seating capacities of 200, 144 and 136 and is part of the Europa Cinemas Group.

In August 2008, building work was being carried out on the Club Open Gate, and it had re-opened by July 2010.

I saw Bertolucci’s film “Il te nel deserto” or “The Sheltering Sky” in this cinema on Christmas Day in 1990. Good audience, as I recall.

In the smaller Fiammetta on August 26, 1969 I saw Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby.”

This is the cinema where Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” had its premiere on February 3, 1960.
