Cinema Odeon Florence – Movies in original language

Cinema

"Cinema Odeon" Florence is one of the few surviving old-fashioned cinemas in the city. It's beautiful and also plays films in their original language.

Nowadays, finding old-fashioned small cinemas is getting harder and harder, since huge multiplexes are phagocytizing most of them. This is also one of the reasons why I don't go to the movies very often: it kind of lost the magic it had when I was a kid. Among the very few "survivors" of that kind in Florence, Odeon cinema is probably the most remarkable one, especially for its extremely elegant interior design. It is situated in the very centre of the town, in a beautiful historical building named Palazzo dello Strozzino, once owned by the Strozzi family, one of the most powerful and influential in town (they used to be bankers).

It is also one of the very few places where you can watch the latest releases in their original language (mainly English), with Italian subtitles. You can check for "Original Sound" programme on their website for more information about the films they are going to host.
