Egli Cinema

Egli Cinema is perhaps the oldest cinema still in operation in Athens. Opened in the early 20th century, this is also the home of Egli Beer Restaurant, which opened in 1904.

The theatre’s close proximity to the Zappeion Mansion and its gardens heighten the appeal to this picturesque section of old Athens. Now part of the large Egli multiplex, with its restaurants, bars, coffee shops and event venues, the cinema is considered one of the best places for entertainment in Athens.

Despite being right in the heart of Athens, it is practically free of the noise usually associated with bustling cities. Enveloped by lush greenery and the perfume of summer flowers, the cinema even has a stunning private veranda ideal for watching your favourite movies or enjoying a great dinner.
