Movie theaters: 10 of the world’s best
Movie theaters around the world that are just as enjoyable as the films they show
By Hoishan Chan
The best movie theaters always make the movie better.
You could be watching the third re-run of your own birth, but if you’re snuggled into a soft seat with buttery popcorn in your lap and a sound system that feels like its channeled directly into your temporal lobe, somehow you’ll come out feeling like you had a good time.
For the global jet-setting movie junkie, these are some movie theaters that take a good experience and make it great.
1. Cine Thisio, Athens, Greece
From your seat at Cine Thisio you not only get to view the latest blockbuster but also the Acropolis, and the Parthenon that sits on top. The best view is at night.
Cine Thisio is the oldest outdoor movie theater in Athens, built in 1935, and is usually open from April to October. Cine Thisio shows both first-run studio releases and classic movies.
