Turin, Royal Palace becomes a cinema for the summer: start of the eighth edition of "Cinema at the Palace"

From July 12 to August 31, 2019, the Royal Palace in Turin becomes a cinema with the eighth edition of 'Cinema at the Palace.

Distretto Cinema returns to organize with the Royal Museums, the National Museum of Cinema, the Piedmont Region and the City of Turin the Cinema a Palazzo festival. This edition is number eight. Forty-two evenings are planned, from July 12 to Aug. 31, for an appointment awaited by the Turin audience, which every summer crowds the 400 seats available, but also by tourists who find in the event an opportunity to experience a symbolic place of Turin in a different way, breathing inside the great cinema. The festival was voted by Vanity Fair as one of the most beautiful arenas inItaly, and last year TravelGlobe listed it as one of the reasons to visit Turin in the summer.

“Cinema at the Palace, edition after edition, is confirming itself as one of the most appreciated summer events by the people of Turin and not only by them. I am sure that the review scheduled in July and August on the big screen of the open-air cinema hall, set up in the Court of Honor of the Royal Palace, which will offer images and dialogues of art films, great classics and some of the most beloved films of all time, will get the approval of many people, ”says Chiara Appendino, Mayor of the City of Turin. “Cinema at the Palace offers the opportunity to spend a pleasant summer evening outdoors in a place as full of charm as the Royal Palace and seeing, or seeing again, one of the films that have left an indelible mark in the history of cinematography or that have otherwise been a great success with critics and audiences.”

“The Royal Museums are delighted to have Cinema at the Palace at the heart of their summer initiatives again this year. An appointment awaited by the Turin public and tourists not only for the great quality of the proposed selection, but also for the opportunity to experience one of Turin’s symbolic places in a different way,” comments Enrica Pagella, director of the Royal Museums. “An event that puts art and great cinema in dialogue, united this year even more by the figure of Riccardo Gualino, who among other things was also a visionary film producer and to whose collections the Museums have dedicated an exhibition.”
