Excelsior Cinema

Located in the historic walled centre of Prato, in the Tuscany region of northern Italy, the Excelsior Cinema was based in the former Garibaldi Hall.

It is not known when it first opened, but it closed in late-2009 following the opening of the Multiplex in the Omnia Center.

In November 2014 it was reported that Eros Ossani, operator of the nearby Eden Cinema, was hoping to re-open the Excelsior. However, the building containing the cinema, owned by the Bertini family of Florence, was the focus of a complex hereditary transition following the death of the owner and this did not proceed. Another factor appeared to be the building’s listed building status.

When I visited, in March 2016, it appeared that the ground floor was being used for retail sales, with apartments occupying the upper floors. However, I was not able to determine what the former cinema hall was being used for.
