You can't go to movies here :-( It's a shell of a building now, and while they look like they might be rebuilding it, they certainly hasn't started as of 11/2015.

Hello all, I went to see the theatre but I seems it has suffered of a big fire and therefore, it's all in ruins. The building is half standing and some printed pictures hanging on the outside remind us of what the theatre used to be.

It is known as the most prestigious cinema in the centre of Athens. Even if other cine complexes have been built, this keeps the flair it used to have.

The theatre is housed in a wonderful neoclassical building started in 1870 on designs by the famous architect Ernest Tchller and then redesigned in 1914 in neo-baroque style by Alexandros Nikoloudis. Turned into a cinema 6 years later, it was the first cinema in Greece to project a talkie movie, in 1929, and in 1960 it was the first (together... More

It has a huge screen. The building is old and has charm. I enjoy the whole experience of watching a film here. It's my favourite cinema in Athens. Unfortunately someone set light to the building and it has been gutted. We may never get it back due to realtors buying places for a quarter of their real value.

Grandioso atmosphere, the outmost Cinema Ritual; It is a must if you like movie theaters and being in Athens at winter.

We have all seen with great regret the flames coming out this magnificent theater about three months ago. A group of students that were fed up with the politicians and austerity programs burned this part of Athens that every Athenian has a small or great memory. At that moment there are plans to build it again and if I am... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
