Since 1960, with the premiere of Jules Dassin’s Academy Award winning film Never on Sunday, Trianon has been one of the most active participants not only in the movie going culture in the city, but also in its artistic and cultural life.
With one of the country’s best tiered seating arrangements and a fully retractable motorized roof, Trianon operates both as an open-air cinema and as a classic winter cinema. From its one-of-a-kind auditoriums to its avant-garde interior, attentive staff and unique artistic offerings, Trianon has delighted audiences and artists alike for almost half a century. In 1997, Trianon became one of the few open-air movie theatres placed under Monument Protection by the Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning.
The theatre staff and owners insist on detailed and regular equipment maintenance to offer audiences an exceptional cinema experience.
As a leading member of the Europa Cinemas Network, Trianon screens the latest releases of European cinema, including a selection of films for cinephiles. Its homages and retrospectives have achieved international fame, including the prestigious Drama International Short Film Festival, currently in its 43th edition. Its “Music AL Tuesdays”, screenings followed by live concerts with Manos Hadjidakis Orchesta, have become well-loved and much anticipated events. The Leonidas Papageorge Festival, an annual event featuring prestigious screenings, concerts, plays and master classes, continues to delight and enthrall young and old audiences alike.
