Best answer

"Closed Circuit" (1978 Italy)

From IMDb review:

A group of people arrive to watch a movie. Suddenly when a shot is heard from the movie someone is shot for real inside the cinema, and the police arrives to investigate the murder. Who killed him, and who is the killer?

The police ask everyone to sit in the same positions as before and try to watch the movie again; but, when the gunshot is heard from in the movie for the second time, another person is shot for real! this makes things more complicated for the police as there is no motive or suspects or evidence of gun found!

Amazing , thank you!
This one appears occasionally at movie-question sites, so I made a card for it in my file to remind me. I can remember a very early search for this that had many people half-crazed as they tried to find it. When someone finally found it, I think we had some very grateful people who added it to their knowledge.

I've never seen it, but I've read about it. Maybe someday...
