Even time I get sick of the town I'm in and contemplate leaving, I think of Cine and feel substantially better. If you love good movies and still cherish the experience of watching them with like-minded strangers--while sipping wine or beer like an adult!--Cine will...More

Went to a book signing here and was impressed. Nice small bar with cocktails, wine and good selection of craft beers. Had limited snacks like popcorn and cookies. Nice movies for indie operation. The feature was a Halloween film fest for October with many classics....More

I love this place. Cine plays films you can't usually see in this part of the world due to the lack of independent theaters. They have fun themed adult drinks as well. Saw Mr Rogers documentary while sipping on a neighborly margarita. Please support this...More

Enjoy drinks, lovely snacks, and great films while supporting local business. Drink prices are great and they have a generous student discount on movie tickets.

This little local theater is my favorite place to see a movie in town because it has character, comfort, and ambiance I don't see at the huge multiplexes. The theaters do not have stadium seating, so you could have a problem is a tall person...More

What a great addition to the Athens Downtown experience. It has been with us for ten years. Fine films, good libations, and pleasant surroundings come together to give one a very relaxing and enjoyable experience at a matinee or evening screening. Do not miss out.

Cozy, arty . Allows drinks and popcorn inside. No real food served. Eat next door at the National which is aowened by a James Beard award winning chef. Best dinner and a movie in Athens

I visited family here in Athens and made my second trip to Cine. I am totally enthralled with the beauty and coziness of the space. Only two screens are available and the auditoriums are not oversized and offered a comfortable amount of legroom. The concessions...More

With a bar in its cozy artsy lobby, Cine has two theatre spaces that show more mainstream movies than you'd think (some say too much more) along with less traditional, hard to see gems from around the globe. Friendly staff, clean restrooms, fun for dates....More
