Two open-air cinemas in Greece, one in Plaka (Athens) and one on Santorini, are included in The Guardian’s “Top 10 open-air cinemas in Europe” list. The list was compiled following a survey among readers of the UK newspaper.
“With romantic locations under the stars, Europe’s outdoor cinemas evoke the magic of the silver screen,” The Guardian says.
According to the UK newspaper, the “Cine Paris” in Plaka, Athens, is the fourth best open-air cinema in Europe: “This is a rooftop cinema in the heart of the historic Plaka area and sits in the shadow of the Acropolis, which adds atmosphere to any film. There is a wonderful mix of local people and tourists, with movies ranging from animation to the latest arthouse must-sees. I have treasured memories of sipping a chilled beer and watching a brilliant film in the most stunning setting imaginable.”
Greece’s second mention on the list (in the eighth place) is that of “Cine Kamari” found on Santorini Island: “Just outside town is the most chilled place to watch a movie on the planet. You can recline, near horizontal, in a luxury deckchair, breathing in the heady mix of joss sticks and other herbal aromas, with a cocktail from the bar on the table beside you and the Greek stars twinkling above.”
