This is the true modern Greek summer experience. See a movie, have a drink and a snack all under the moon and stars. Many of these theaters show older movies. You might not want to see a "3D" or special effects movie in an outdoor...More

Writing this title certainly conjures up memories of a certain Top Gear presenter, but honestly the view from this open-air cinema is, well, stupendous. Sit towards the back right corner, as you view the projection screen, and you will be delighted. An intermission guarantees at...More

Saw Solo on the day of it's European release. Very atmospheric with the Acropolis in the background. They gave out cushions and blankets. Greek subtitles to the English standard soundtrack. Perfect end to an evening after a days sightseeing.

This is one of the most traditional open-air cinemas in Athens! As in most of the others, you can watch a movie in a garden, eat a snack, drink a refreshment...a nice tradition we try to keep in Greece, enjoy!!

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
