The Athens cinema field can be divided into three categories. Firstly, there are a number of multiplex cinemas situated in neighborhoods around the city center, at a distance of between 15 to 45 minutes by public transportation or taxi. On the other hand, the visitor will find many cinema venues in the city center, presenting a wide variety of films from cinefil to blockbusters.
Finally, a unique feature of Greek cinema is the summer open- air cinemas. Situated in many peaceful spots around the city, they combine café and cinema services so that you can sit with your companions at a table and enjoy a coffee, refreshment or a drink while watching a film on the screen under the beautiful Athenian skyline.
What you should also know is the fact that when screened in Greece foreign films are never dubbed, they just carry subtitles in Greek. Consequently, you can go to any cinema venue and watch your favorite movie in its original language.
