Why locals love it

Cine Thisseion is the oldest open air cinema in Athens. When the summer nights come, the locals like to watch a film and enjoy a cold beer under the stars. Cine Thisseion has an extra bonus: you can enjoy a movie while taking a glimpse of the Acropolis. A must-have experience in Athens and voted as one of the best cinemas in the world.

Why you should visit it

The culture of open air cinemas is very important in Greece, as the summer comes in May and stays until September. It is an important gathering around the small tables, where people take a breath of fresh air with a cold drink, while being seduced by the big screen. Cine Thisseion is one of the most popular ones, as it also boasts a terrific view.

Special tip

Cine Thisseion has a nice bar where you can take a bite while watching your film. Screenings usually start around 9 and 11, when it gets dark.

Lovely spot to see a movie. I like it when they do projections of old black and white movies. Great place to relax with a movie, drink something and enjoy.
