Whether you’re a cinema expert or just a film-lover, here you can enjoy some high-quality movies
The “Cinema Centrale” is the ideal place to spend some time alone or with some friends.
It opens from September to the end of May, with a programme suitable for all ages. The cinema alternates a collection of first runs, cartoons, comedies, action movies and arthouse movies in order to please everyone. It’s an important cultural and meeting place, and it’s available to rent for events, meetings and screening for schools and associations.
The Persio Flacco Theater
It has a long history, starting exactly 200 years ago in 1820
The theater has the shape of a horseshoe, four rows of balconies and an acoustic vault. In 1816, some “Volterrani” decided to build a new theater substituting the old “Salone delle Commedie”. They built it inside one of the most beautiful “palazzi” of the city, Palazzo Incontri, and used its ground floor and back garden. A few noble families from Volterra paid for it and donated it to the city as an important culture and meeting place for the community.
