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

Rude person at the tickets, when she was asked why there was no popcorn or any other form of refreshments available she said that's the experience they want to give (wow...) so you don't really have the movie theater experience. The chairs inside are hard...More

Yes, they show films in the original language so we caught up on Hail, Caesar! and Room on a couple of afternoons. The screens and sound are good and the location, just off the mad Via del Corso, is really handy but best of all...More

In the very heart of Rome near via Tomacelli is this small cinema with two small cinema theaters. Their films are often in original language with italian subtitles. very cosy for a different afternoon in Rome.

Fabulous cinema showing films in their original version, an island in a fake sea of dubbed nonsense. Should be packed every day of the week but isn't. Please start showing films for kids too early at weekends or at 5 on weekdays - hundreds of...More

I get upset every time I go to Nuovo Olimpia. It is the only original language cinema in Rome, and for this reason it is always a popular place for tourists and cinema enthusiasts in the city. However, this small cinema lacks in customer service,...More

After the closure of Metropolitan cinema in Via del Corso, Nuovo Olimpia is the only cinema in Rome offering this. It's truly a shame that a capital cannot offer anything more, but the dubbing industry is too strong down here.... Anyway, I am a frequent...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. Situated between Spagna and Flaminio on Metro A, the location is convenient...More

Colonna
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
