English-language Cinema in Athens

Information on how to find full listings of what's showing at the movies today in Athens, and where to find your nearest cinema...

Athens has large cinema chains and multiplexes (Village Cinemas, Odeon, Cinemax and Ster Cinemas) and small independent movie houses with one or two screens. Outdoor, open air cinemas are very popular in summer and there are many around the city.

Most movies are shown in their original language with Greek subtitles: unless stated otherwise, it can be presumed that a film will be shown in its original language. Children’s films are an exception, and are usually dubbed. Cinema listings may indicate how a foreign-language film will be screened in the following ways:

  • ??? ????????: in Greek
  • ??? ???????: in English
  • ??????: (?????????????): dubbed
  • ?? ??????????: with subtitles

Online Bookings

Tickets for films at the larger cinema chains can be bought online. The websites are in Greek only.

Most small theatres do not provide this service. Tickets can generally be bought at the ticket office on the day of screening. Tickets offices usually open at least one hour before the first showing (but this varies).

Athens Outdoor Cinemas

There are many open air cinemas in Athens all over the city, including in the middle of heavily built up areas, on rooftops and in enclosed courtyards. Some have very discreet entrances and may not be obvious from the street. Snacks and drinks are available and, as the cinema is outdoors, smoking is generally allowed. Films screened outdoors usually have an intermission.

Open-air cinemas are usually open from May until September, when many smaller film theatres close for summer. Films are shown in their original language with Greek subtitles. Screenings take place in the evening, often at 21:00 and at 23:00.
