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.

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
