    Default Oldest Cinema in the world

    The first official screening in the Lumière Cinema in pisa (Italy) was made on 16 December 1905. The first official sound screening was made on 19 October 1906. Even after a thorough renovation in 2005, which brought modern equipment, the cinema did not lose its original Art Nouveau charm by the famous architect Luigi Bellincioni (1842-1929).

    Lumière cinema has not a certificate issued by the Guinness World Records but it has still the documents, published in the book "Il Lumière di Pisa. 100 anni di cinema a Palazzo Agostini" (Pisa, Felici Editore, 2005) by Renato Bovani e Rosalia Del Porro.

    Korsør Biograf Teater (opened January 30th, 1907) in the danish city Korsør was listed the oldest cinema in the Guinness Book of World Records from 2008. The Pionier Cinema (opened September 26th, 1909) in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland) was listed as the oldest in the Guinness Book of World Records from 2005 to 2007.
