Cinema Odeon

The Odeon is an historical cinema in Vicenza, Italy which opened as a movie theatre on the 18th of May 1907 and since then has never stopped its activity. The building was originally a church, one of the seven oldest in Vicenza dating back to at least the year 1000.

It was deconsecrated in 1809 and then converted into a craftsmen corporation meeting hall in 1858. The 430-seat Cinema Odeon is probably the longest continuously operating movie theatre in Italy and one of the oldest in Europe.

In November 2021 a second 49-seat screen was opened. It was named Nuova Sala Lampertico. The seating capacity in the main original auditorium is now 339. The external original church front has been restored.
