We went to the new address and it was closed with metal fencing all around. The place looks closed down, although there is no mention of this on the website.

The only exhibition on at the moment is film, long and short from the 70's to 90's.I was not expecting it to be old movies from the USA or other countries with greek subtitles. There was no paintings or sculptures.
