Three brand new movie theaters, one seating 500 and the other two 150 each – so with a total capacity of 800 – will be right at the heart of the Festival’s new headquarters. Located just a short walk from Piazza Grande, the long-awaited Palazzo del Cinema, now officially known as PalaCinema Locarno, will open its doors for the first time to mark the 70th anniversary of the Locarno Festival. During the Festival the PalaCinema, a regional project managed by PalaCinema Locarno SA and property of the City of Locarno, will be the venue for the Filmmakers of the Present Competition sidebar as well as hosting special screenings.

Discover the weekly screenings at the PalaCinema and the screenings of the "Circolo del Cinema Locarno" in original language.
