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 of them are awful) and stick to more interesting pieces. The seats are comfortable and... 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 like wood, short, so short you can't rest your shoulders and head, neither there is... 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 is the set up. The cinema opens just before the film starts and there is... 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.

Went there to watch a movie during our vacation in Rome. I googled which cinemas show movies in English and this was one of it. It is a small cinema with two rooms. The service was nice, the quality of the film was good. We paid 16€ for two tickets which I think is a fair price.

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 people would come, not just me and my daughter. A summer film festival would great... 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, facilities, and true care for their patrons. You get a feeling that they really don't... 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....

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 for a dinner/film out on the town (despite the newest drama with the 9pm closure... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
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 face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
