Maria Douza / FR, 2016 / 52 min.
This documentary series takes viewers to mythical cinemas around the world. Every one has unmistakeably left its mark on its country and cinema’s history. In this episode, Thission in Athens.
A white cement screen. Red chairs, neatly lined up. Four walls bedecked with wild grape vines. The heavens above Athens, the illuminated silhouette of the Acropolis. As dusk falls, the Thission awaits its first visitors. The Thission, “the most beautiful cinema on the planet,” according to CNN Travel, is an old, open air cinema in Athens which, despite its location in the extremely touristic part of the city by the Acropolis stubbornly defies modernity and remains remarkably timeless.
