First cinema in Athens

Just before the official opening of the first cinema in Athens, the Athenians came in contact with the whole aspect of a cinema in 1897. The first projection of a moving image caused vivid reactions. The new entertainment was a central topic within the Athenian society and a cause of countless publications. 

In 1907 the first cinema opened in the Greek capital. Although cinemas were spreading all over the city, many theatres had special screenings in order to cater for the demand. 
Today it has become one of the main form of entertainment not only in Athens but world wide!
