Located at the corner of Piazza del Viminale with via Agostino Depretis and via del Vininale. The Supercinema was opened on 19th February 1925, with seating provided for 2,500 in orchestra and balcony levels. Illumination in the Art Deco style auditorium was via three toughs in the ceiling above the balcony, which contained concealed lighting, and a large dome over the front orchestra seating area which was also back-lit. The Supercinema was closed as a cinema in the 1980’s.

Today, with a capacity of 500 seats re-spaced in the orchestra, and using only the front seating section of the balcony, it has been restored in 2009, and re-named Teatro Nazionale. It is operated by the nearby historic Teatro dell'Opera for opera, dance and concerts. The building also contains a large rehearsal space.
