It is one of the city’s historic movie theaters and it’s now ready to reopen its door to the public. Part of the building of the former Casa GIL designed by architect Luigi Moretti and inaugurated in Trastevere in 1937, the space was used for film projections since the 1950s and with the name of “Cinema Induno” it appears behind Vittorio De Sica in 1952 in the comedy “Hello Elephant”.
