Cinemas in Greece play movies in their original language and have Greek subtitles (besides children’s films). So if you are just visiting or living here and don’t speak Greek, cinemas are fair game for your activities list.
As a non-Greek speaker, you can still maneuver your way around the sites for the cinemas, even though they are not offered in English. You can identify the films by their poster and then they will have the date and time listed numerically.
The best option is to use an amazing local App that lists movies in English.
This cinema is located in the heart of the busy cafe district of Zisimopoulou street. It’s the perfect location for ‘dinner and a movie’ or grabbing a drink after the film at one of the many surrounding establishments.

Novacinema Odeon Glyfada
Odeon is a popular cinema chain located through-out Greece. A bit more traditional, even including a break halfway through the movie. It is located on a busy street connecting the beach road to Leof. Vouliagmenis in a mostly residential area. However, there are a few restaurants in the nearby Plateia Xenofontos.
