Since 1987, the Open Air Cinema has been situated at the entrance of the beautiful coastal Kamari village, and constitutes a popular attraction on the island.

The Travel Channel (2012), The Guardian UK (2014), and CNN (2015) have all included the cinema in the list of the 10 best open-air cinemas worldwide. There, for an admission fee of 8 euros, visitors can enjoy A’ class movies in English with Greek subtitles, showcased in high definition (HD), and Dolby Digital surround sound. The cinema is open from May to October and the movies start at 21.30, while during the summer months, it also hosts several cultural events and exhibitions.

The reasons behind its allure and popularity are far beyond the picture and sound quality. Cine Kamari is a wonderful, atmospheric place that looks like an exotic garden, as it is surrounded by tall walls and many trees, and resembles a modern amphitheater with comfy director’s chairs and small tables. It owns a great full bar with friendly staff and a variety of delicious cocktails, local beers and wines, ice cream, refreshments, and all kinds of snacks at reasonable prices, while the intermission during the film, allows guests to visit it. Blankets are also provided in case you feel a bit chilly.

Picture this: relaxing in these beautiful surroundings, chatting with your company, enjoying your favorite cocktail along with a gentle breeze, and listening to nice music under the stars while waiting for the movie to start. The coziest atmosphere you can imagine! Cine Kamari is the perfect idea for a night out whether you are with your friends, family, or significant other, while many are those who can’t resist a second visit during their stay on the island. Although going to the cinema is considered a low-key activity, at this open-air cinema you will have a fantastic experience and great fun. Even newlyweds who spend their honeymoon in Santorini prefer it for an entertaining, romantic evening. A useful tip, though, for those who wish to visit the cinema, is to arrive early (the doors open at 20.30) to avoid long queues and make sure that they find a seat, since it is remarkably popular among both tourists and locals.

Cine Kamari is a special, intriguing cinema, the right place to unwind in an amazing ambiance and hence it is highly recommended for an alternative experience on the island, which can be one of the most memorable you had in Santorini! A brilliant setting to relish your favorite movie! Even if the movie is not so good, the place will make up for it. Actually, this can be the only problem at this cinema; the gorgeous surroundings can distract you from the movie!
