Subtitles available: English
Handbook of Movie Theaters’ History is a documentary about the history, the development in the present days and the future of movie theaters in the city of Turin, Italy. It mixes the documentary language with comedy and fiction, and is enriched by interviews to some of the most important voices of Turin cinematography. The film follows the evolution of movie theaters by enlightening its main milestones: the pre-cinema experiences in the late 19th Century, the colossals and the movie cathedrals of the silent era, the arthouse theaters, the National Museum of Cinema, the Torino Film Festival, the movie theaters system today and the main hypothesis about its future. The mission of Handbook of Movie Theaters’ History is to explore and give back to the audience a deep reflection about the identity and the value of movie theater, in its social and anthropological role and as a mass media, and to analyze the experience of the viewer.
Manuale di storie dei cinema è un documentario che racconta la storia dei cinema di Torino, ne analizza il presente e avanza ipotesi sulle prospettive future della sala cinematografica. Ibridando il genere documentario con la commedia e arricchendo la narrazione con diverse scene di fiction e con interviste ad alcune delle voci più importanti del cinema e della cultura torinese, il film segue in senso cronologico l’evoluzione dell’esercizio cinematografico cittadino: dalle esperienze di pre-cinema alla fine dell’Ottocento; alle eccellenze di inizio Novecento, come produzioni del muto e cinema di lusso; poi sale d’essai, Museo del Cinema e festival; fino all’attualità e alle ipotesi sulle sale del futuro, nel più ampio contesto nazionale contemporaneo. Manuale di storie dei cinema si pone l’obiettivo di approfondire e restituire allo spettatore una riflessione sull’identità e sul valore della sala cinematografica, nel suo ruolo sociale, antropologico e mediale, e uno studio dei meccanismi di fruizione dell’esperienza cinematografica.
