Summer has arrived along with its ever rising temperatures. However, with warm days come cool nights, something that we all try to take advantage of in the most useful and entertaining ways possible. One such way is the Open Air Cinema. Find out the reasons below…

For movie lovers, which make up the largest part of the world, the cinema is their favorite place to be. Naturally, nobody wants to watch a movie cooped up in a room during summer time. So they prefer to watch it from the comfort of their own home. Or might choose a different way to entertain themselves, setting aside the mood for a movie night.

Open Air Cinemas offer the solution to this problem. Viewers from all ages are drawn to these cinemas, from Athens and Thessaloniki, to even the smaller cities. It is important to note that the two largest cities in Greece host an outdoor movie theatre in almost every area, utilizing the cities’ yards and terraces.

But what is so special about open air cinemas that capture the attention of even the non movie lovers? It is first and foremost an original way to enjoy a movie. You are not forced into an enclosed area, but you are able to combine cool nights with your favorite movies.
