This cinema has been around since I was a small child, I remember it from the '60's. I first saw Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty' here! Of course it has been remodeled since and now shows 2 films simultaneously, it has 2 cinemas. For those of us...More

After looking around for a cinema showing a film in english, this was a good option. There is no concessions stand, therefore you have to bring your own snacks. Managed to catch a Woody Allen classic, which made for a fun experience (having never watched...More

This is a lovely, simple little cinema. They show films in original language (rare in Italy) with Italian subtitles. They also usually show a good range of films, not just films in English. They tend to avoid the Hollywood Blockbusters, which is good (as most...More

Although it should not be considered a sufficient replacement to the recently deceased Metropolitan cinema (rest in peace), Nuovo Olimpia is a decent place to see mainstream or independent films in original language.

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
very centre of the city. Even though it has some of
the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle
Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque
parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty
