Open-air cinemas are an excellent place which very few countries can offer all year-long. In Greece, watching a movie at a summer cinema might be a regular habit, but for visitors it is a one-off experience. A date at the movie theater under the stars is much more romantic. It is a Greek summer tradition that has truly taken on a life of its own.
Almost every Greek neighbourhood has a cinema of this kind, some of them are with stunning views of the Acropolis or of the sea. For example, Attica has over sixty open-air cinemas. The summer cinemas across the country open every May. Black and white movies are a must for open-air movie theaters, which the audience can relive together.
With two films per night running, usually one at 21:00 and the other at 23:00, you can buy your tickets just 20 minutes before the performance, and you are also allowed to get a drink or a snack on site. It is one of the most affordable means of entertainment, enchanting Greeks and summer visitors alike every year.
