About
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.
Duration: 2-3 hours

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
How to get there
  • Thissio • 6 min walk
  • Akropoli • 6 min walk

I went there with my partner for an 11pm showing of the new Barbie film starring Margot Robbie. We arrived half hour early and there was already quite a crowd queuing up, so I recommend being early as you can only buy tickets at the box office. We managed to get some nice seats. The drinks are very cheap, a bottle of water for €0.50 and beer €2.50. There’s also popcorn available and additional snacks. The bathroom is very clean.

The experience is amazing, sitting under a starry sky in the summer evening heat with crickets chirping, nice cold drinks and a movie. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and will never forget it.
There was also a tiny cat walking in and out of the cinema, manouvering itself between seats and legs of people for the entirety of the movie, which was a cute little addition to the experience haha!

The only thing is, my butt was starting to hurt a tiny bit by the end of the 2 hour film as the seats aren’t too comfy, but at the same time it didn’t take anything away from the fun and experience and I’d do it again in a heartbeat if we had more time in Athens.

Fabulous location to watch a movie beneath views of the Acropolis. We saw Top Gun Maverick with a few beers on a hot June evening. Would highly recommend this cinema. Get there an hour early for your choice of seats.

This was a great experience with a film in English that we'd never even heard of in the US but was excellent. Be aware that there is a lot of traffic and you should arrive about 20 minutes early.

Great way to spend an evening. Classic and other relatively obscure films are shown in their original language (often English) with Greek subtitles and English subtitles if the soundtrack isn't already English. Outdoor seating with a view of the Acropolis house-right. Snack bar with popcorn, hotdogs, etc. There will be an intermission to encourage you to return to patronize the snack bar.

This outdoor cinema is a perfect way to relax and cool down after a hot, busy day in Athens. I saw Casablanca and enjoyed a snack and mellow atmosphere.

If you have a free evening in Athens, this is a must. It's an outdoor cinema, and you can literally see the Acropolis from your seat. They have two showings each night, at 9 and 11 and if you go on Mon-Wed, the tickets are a little cheaper at €6. It feels like they tend to show the classics - I saw the original Italian Job, which was great! Bear in mind, if you catch the late show, the metro will not be running when you finish!

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening, lovely atmosphere watching the film in the open air. Chair cushions and blankets provided, thoughtful addition as the temperature lowered. Old fashioned little shop selling wine and snacks to enjoy during the performance.
