Cinecittà (Rome) is hosting 70 mm film format of The Hateful Eight of Quentin Tarantino.
Cinecittà was opened on 28th april 1937 by Benito Mussolini in south-east of Rome. His idea was to create a city of cinema (Cinecittà means città del cinema, city of cinema), a propaganda machine which could compete with the propaganda of german and american cinema. Today Cinecittà is kind of museum, living with memories of past. In the pic, we can see scenery created for the film Casanova (1976) made by Federico Fellini.
Teatro 5 (theatre number 5) seen today; it was favourite's theatre by Federico Fellini. In these days it is hosting the 70 mm film format of The Hateful Eight, latest film of Quentin Tarantino.
Inside the Teatro 5 of Cinecittà, they built an imitation of the Minnie's Habersdashery, the lodge used in the majority of the film.
People can see the old studios in Cinecittà. Why not trasform a studio in a new Imax Theatre? There is no Imax theatre in all centre of Italy.
