Open Air Cinemas

(Cine Thiseion, Thiseio, Athens)

Open air cinemas first began at around 1916 in Berlin, Germany.
Viewers usually sit on camping chairs or blankets. Some Hollywood world premieres were screened in outdoor cinemas – sometimes with the stars in attendance. Most screenings are free with some raising money for charities.
It is not just a summer habit, it is one of summer's blessings!
