I don’t want to say that Italian dubbers don’t know how to do their job, but I’d rather watch a movie as it was created. In the city, well actually all over Italy, there aren’t many cinemas that show films in their original language. Nuovo Olimpia does it. Most of them are in English but sometimes Spanish or French movies are screened as well.
I enjoy this place for various reasons, first of all I guess because it’s one of the oldest cinemas of the city and it’s not really big, in fact there are only two sort of small rooms that remind me of a typical 50s style cinema. Finally, because it is located in a street that crosses Via del Corso, the main shopping street of Rome. It is a perfect way to end an evening of shopping or if you don’t feel like hitting the pubs and squares and just want to relax without knowing Italian (Italians subtitles are present).
They screen the latest movies and old classics as well, check the site for the cinema schedule and timetables.
Please keep in mind that there is no bar inside so if you want to pair your movie with popcorn and coke, bring your own!
Getting there: Barberini or Spagna Metro on Line A.
