‘Hateful Eight’ To Launch In Italy From Fellini’s Studio 5 At Cinecittà With 888-Seat Preem

ROME – Italy’s Cinecittà Studios are set to welcome Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” with a unique launch from its legendary Studio 5 soundstage, once Federico Fellini’s second home, now being turned into a special screening venue equipped for 70mm projection and 888 seats.

Tarantino specifically asked Cinecittà to send out exactly 888 invites for the January 28 Italo preem of his Western, which has eight characters and is his eighth pic. The number 8 will be the evening’s theme. Fellini famously shot “8 1/2” at Cinecittà.

One side of Studio 5 is being equipped with a giant 21×8 meter (68×26 feet) screen, black carpeting, and 888 classic cinema seats. Another section will feature a faux snow-covered set piece at the centre of which will be the pic’s remote tavern. Read more at Variety.
