I can't describe how amazing this night was!

This place is magnificent, well decorated, well isolated (even though Santorini is windy, you just feel a breeze sometimes there), with an amazing bar and it's great value! The bar is incredibly cheap and you have a lot to choose, and if you're not sure if you want something from there and you don't feel like leaving your seat just to see the menu you can use your phone and access to the KamariCinemaMenu wireless - you will have all the menu in your cellphone screen! Also they have wireless for free, if you are alone or tired of waiting you can go to internet entertain yourself while listening to jazz music that is playing while the movie does not start.

We watch "Now You See Me", such a great movie! Between some chairs you have tables where you can put the trays from the bar and watching the movie comfortably.

I was a bit concern about being able to see anything during the movie because I'm not the tallest person (not even close) and I saw a lot of tall people, but they managed this Cinema so well that the chairs are not at the same level and you can see everything.

The only two cons I found in this place were: the chairs after one hour sitting are not so comfortable but I can understand that we weren't at a regular cinema with seats that the employers don't need to move if it starts raining. The other con has nothing to do with the Cinema but with some people behaviour. I saw a lot of people almost attacking the gate just to enter first (what's the point guys?!) - actually it doesn't matter if you made reservation because people will just enter saying they have a reservation without anybody checking - , showing lack of respect for the people working in that amazing Cinema, looking like animals in the jungle fighting for the last drops of water. There is a lot of space for everyone, that is no need to struggle. All the seats are ok, you can see all the screen and have good sound. You don't need to rush, pushing people and giving bad example to your own kids. It was really rude and they didn't care.

I'm talking about like 1/8 of the people that were there, so don't be afraid I'm just saying this for you to not be impressed.

The Kamari Cinema is one of the most nicest places I've been in Santorini, totally worth the money and not expensive at all for young travellers.

A gorgeous open air cinema with a little bar. Very romantic, perfect night out. Only downside is the smoking customers, so sit on the left hand side to avoid the smoke

Watched World War Z here on Sunday, great film and amazing experience. Caught the bus from Fira and dropped off and picked up right outside at the bus stop across the road from the cinema. €1.60 each way, bargain! Sitting under the stars watching the film with a strawberry daiquiri and Yellow Donkey (€5 for a donkey, cheaper then most bars in Fira) The place was packed on our night but everywhere gets a great view, sat in a directors chair. The cute kitten roaming around under people's chairs added to the experience (especially when watching a jumpy Zombie film!). It's a magical experience, I would recommend anyone go.

The cinema is lovely and clean, excellent seating and sells reasonably priced food and drink. A great night out in Santorini.
