The Lumiere is a cinema located in Pisa, but not for much longer...
On December 16, 1905 the Lumiere opened as Italy's first cinema. Now, after a century of generations have passed through the infamous double doors, the cinema has been 'strangled by the logic of commerce and profit' says Daniela Meucci, manager of the cinema.
Italy's oldest cinema is set to close, and according to the Florentine, is likely to be bought by a firm and turned into yet another coffee house. Italy is famous for the beauty and historical backgrounds that date back centuries; it is the consumers job to keep those businesses flourishing.
