General presentation

Since 1927, just a stone's throw from the Negresco, the Rialto cinema has been welcoming audiences to its five art-house cinemas. An emblematic, vintage local cinema that has retained its old-fashioned cachet, it offers a programme of quality films, some in the original version with subtitles. 

Opened on Friday 11 March 1927 and originally a single-screen cinema, it is still in operation today and is the oldest working cinema in the city, at 4 rue de Rivoli.

Location History
On Friday 11 March 1927, the Cinéma Rialto was officially inaugurated in Nice, a 1,100-seat cinema located right in the centre of the prestigious Grand Hotel district and the Promenade des Anglais. It wasn't until 1956 that a building was erected on top of the cinema. It became a five-screen multiplex in 1978. It was the first cinema to screen talkies in 1929, and the only one in the city to be equipped with a cinerama in the 1960s (extra-large screen and simultaneous projection by several machines).
