One of the most enjoyable and popular features of Athens in the summer is the open air or summer (“therina”) cinemas. You may never have been to one, but… trust us : you are going to love them! There is definitely one near or in your neighbourhood. The surroundings are lovely, lots of green, the night sky above you, beer and pop-corn and a film – either old or new. You don’t have to book your tickets in advance – just go and get them on the spot ! You can find summer cinemas in some holiday resorts as well (eg. Kamari cinema in Santorini which also has great drinks).
Open air cinemas operate from May to September. Some of them have a retractable roof, which can be pulled in case of rain.
An enchanting experience

You will be the only ones to see the film with English subtitles at a cinema, as we have managed to get the rights from the company !
On top of that, you will see it at an open-air cinema in the Chora of Andros that will open exclusively for us.
Why we want you to see this film? Because when we saw it,we thought that it’s a must-see,we absolutely adored it !
Imagine seeing this film where it was made and being in the atmosphere !
There will also be a tour in Chora guided by a local very knowledgeable guide, and of course plenty of time afterwards to stroll the streets and lanes of a unique island town, try the local cuisine and take photographs.
