It has a huge screen. The building is old and has charm. I enjoy the whole experience of watching a film here. It's my favourite cinema in Athens. Unfortunately someone set light to the building and it has been gutted. We may never get it back due to realtors buying places for a quarter of their real value.

At that moment there are plans to build it again and if I am... More
