Owner description: Cine THISIO is an open air cinema and therefore is not opened in winter . Each year opening date depends largely on weather conditions. Typically, the operation of the cinema begins the last week of April or the first week of May and ends in late October. We don't make ​​reservations and you can't book tickets, because we remain traditional, because the capacity of cinema is very large and because all seats are good . If you arrive about 30 minutes earlier you will buy your tickets in comfort, even in the extremely popular films.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

I went last summer.
The cinema has flowers all around its courtyard
and you can see also Acropolis.
The sound is good and the movies are usually English subtitled in Greek.
The bar serves cheese pies, ice creams ,refreshments and beverages.
An added benefit for me is they let you have your bicycle inside,
so you can see the movie without worries

My wife and I both loved Cine Thisio. Once we arrived, we were greeted and led to great seats to see the lights hit the Acropolis. Because it had rained earlier in the day, they gave us seat covers so that we wouldn't get wet. When it started to rain again, they had a shelter in the back that you could sit under. The price for the movie was 8 Euros (a little much, but totally worth it). The early show (that we went to) began at 8:50 & the sound was great.

I would highly recommend Cine Thisio as a fun break from the museums and sites of Athens.

We arrived early and were immediately directed to the best seats for the view of the Acropolis, which is in the center of the back. We were not disappointed! We were also there on the full moon (extra special Friday the 13th Honey Moon!), and seeing the moon rise, while watching a great movie, seeing the Acropolis lit up, is just such an amazing experience.

The theater is in an interesting area of town, which seems to be less overrun by tourists and many more locals.

There is a small cafe in the front of the theater that sells beer, their own homemade cherry juice (non-alcoholic or with brandy), popcorn, nachos, and cheese pie.

If you're in Athens and have time for a truly unique experience, don't miss this!
