CINE PARIS

Catch a movie under the stars while in Greece at one of the magical open-air cinemas of Greece. The smell of jasmine, a soft summer breeze and a cool beer at hand is the stuff Greek summer nights are made of.

IN ATHENS

Cine Thisio (foot of the acropolis, 7 Apostolou Pavlou, Thisseion) lives up to its CNN description as one of the most enjoyable open-air cinemas in the world, then there’s Cine Paris (22 Kydathinaion Street, Plaka) that opened in 1920 and the Guardian describes as one of the best open-air cinemas in Europe.

Athenians are spoilt for choice when it comes to summer cinemas with at least one at every neighborhood.

IN MYKONOS

Enjoy a movie while lying in your hammock at Cine Manto on the party island of Mykonos. Alternatively, sit at one of the tables and enjoy a movie while eating dinner with all the trimmings. The Independent has rated this open-air cinema as one of the best in the world.

IN SANTORINI
