Hollywood stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy were in the Greek capital on 11 June and attended the premiere of their film “Before Midnight” that opened the 3rd Athens Open Air Film Festival.

The premiere was held at the Pallas theater and not at the outdoor movie theater Cine Thisio as originally announced, due to rain forecasts.

Richard Linklater’s “Before Midnight” was filmed in the unique natural setting of Messinia in the Peloponnese. (For more, see here.)
