Open air cinemas in Greece

Its Greek name, “therina cinema” or “kalokairina cinema”, which means “summer cinema”, is a major part of Greek culture.

Even though the open air cinema – its official name – started in Berlin, the idea really caught on in post war Greece; with more than 600 in Athens alone, out of which around 90 of them are still up and running all over Greece, according to a 2015 count.
