I think that the cinema is only open in the summer months. Just on the edge of the old town - 2 showings a night (9 pm and 11 pm) - Mamma Mia 2 was showing when we were in Rethymno and it was great...More

If you are in the area as we were on holiday and you come across this fantastic experience, it’s a must. We watched Mamma Mia 2 along with the locals. We all thought the set up was fantastic

My partner and I stumbled across this place on the internet and thoughts we’d give it a go. With only info from reviews to go by we were unsure as to what film was on or at what time. There were two showings: 9pm and...More

What an amazing experience. 7euros per ticket per person and a small kiosk to buy drinks and popcorn. Fairly comfy seats and a good sized screen and good sound system. There is a bit of background noise from the road or the fortezza occasionally but...More

Great place to see a film in the open air. Generally 2 screenings, one at 20:00 and one at 22:00. Best to take a jacket for the latter. Current movies in English with Greek subtitles. Properly projected. A bit of street noise and the occasional...More

Nothing like watching a movie under the stars on the island of Crete! As a filmmaker myself, this is an experience not to be missed.

Great experience to watch a film under the stars. Thought the picture quality might be suspect, but was perfect and the sound system was impressive. All for 5 Euro and no adverts to sit through. Thoroughly recommended.

We were looking forward to going to the cinema and searched for a timetable to see what was on and when. Unable to find any website with information. Took a chance and travelled into Rethymnon and parked to find out no english film showing and...More

When it's so hot all day, why build a roof, right? Fun concept. New A-grade movies every week. Greek subtitles. At first you're going to need to get used to not trying to read them all the time and focus on the- mostly English- audio.
