Cinema Roma reviews
Lovely century old cinema with original features and lots of object d’art. The main theatre is really impressive and worth a look. Make sure you get a macchiato in the stylish, bustling cafe. more »
There you can buy drinks. Not very invitable. Look from the outside is enough. Easy reachable by foot. more »
