Located at the centre of the village, there was historical evidence of the building now known as the Cinema Teatro Capitan Bovo already in 1814. Before this date, the building also appeared in a drawing by Luigi Trezza dated 1788 and kept in the parish archive of Isola della Scala, where is highlighted as a "warehouse to collect tithe goods".
During the early 20th century, the parish decided to turn the warehouse into a movie theatre, which opened in 1931 and was dedicated to the memory of Captain Luigi Bovo, from Isola della Scala, who distinguished himself in some military actions during World War I and for his considerable efforts in many charitable activities.
A further modernisation was carried in the early 1960s.
The Cinema Teatro Capitan Bovo, was a place where generations of children, adolescents, young people and families gathered, as it held various kinds of performances and especially for the screening of films from its inauguration until its closure in 1985. After years of neglect, a new modernisation and technological upgrading of the building was completed in 2004 Existing masonry structures have been preserved, along with the internal structure with the stalls and upper circle. The stage was renovated and equipped to accommodate theatre performances. (www.capitanbovo.it)
