Cinema Nuovo Olimpia

Located (almost hidden away) in a narrow street off the main shopping street via del Corso in the centre of Rome.

Originally this was the Teatro Olympia, a music hall theatre which was screening the ‘Reale Cinematografo Lumiere’ as part of the programme in April 1898.

This twin screen art house cinema was renovated in 1997, re-opening with Tom Cruise in “Eyes Wide Shut” and Wim Wender’s “Buena Vista Social Club”, and has seating for 275 and 90. It is one of the hosts of the Rome Independent Film Festival. Films are always screened in their original language versions. It is operated by the Circuito Cinema chain and is part of the Europa Cinemas Group.
