Previous Names: Cinema Trevi
The Cinema Sala Trevi is a cinema in the centre of Rome, a few steps from the famed Trevi Fountain, and part of the Cineteca Nazionale Alberto Sordi. Named in honor of the late Roman actor Alberto Sordi, who died in 2003, the programming here presents Italian movies of the past and present, borrowing from the holdings of the National Film Archive with which the theatre is associated. They also show new works of Italian directors and a selection of films and film series imported from other countries.
The state-of-the-art screening facility and the library and research facilities opened in 2003 and were incorporated into the building that housed the former long-dormant Cinema Trevi which had its entrance at via di San Vincenzo 6-10, and had seating on three levels. It is now gutted and in use as a Mondadori bookstore and retail outlet. Much of the current cinema facility exists at subterranean levels, its interior incorporates views of the inevitable archeological ruins uncovered during re-construction.
The place can be described as the equivalent of the Mary Pickford Theatre at the Library of Congress or the American Film Institute Theatre. It is a vital addition to a city that, unlike Paris, never boasted any real cinematheque with regular screenings.
