Rialto Theatre’s open-air cinema returns for magical summer nights


The outdoor cinema of Rialto Theatre returns to cool off summer nights. After its great success in previous years, Rialto’s open-air cinema is back with a diverse range of awarded and recent films from Denmark, Sweden, France, Spain, Argentina, and a co-production of Cyprus, Greece and Italy. Held at SEK parking, behind the theatre, all of the films will be screened in their original language with subtitles in Greek and English.

Films filled with originality, tenderness and humour which focus on human relationships and the complexity that determines them, will offer audiences a delightful escape to the world of cinema. This year’s line-up includes six recent films that stood out and have great audience appeal. Each one deals with a fascinating story and is created by a well-known and highly admired director.

Opening the outdoor cinema series on July 13 is the Danish film Another Round by Thomas Vinterberg which received an Oscar, a Bafta, a César and the European award for Cinema. A few days later, the French film Petite Maman will follow on July 16, a family film directed by Céline Sciamma, awarded at the film festival of St Sebastian and Stockholm.

On July 18, audiences will enjoy the film Man with the Answers by Cypriot Stelios Kammitsis, a co-production of Cyprus, Greece and Italy, starring Vasilis Magouliotis, Anton Weil and Stella Firogeni. Man with the Answers won the Audience Award at the Thessaloniki film festival last year.

The open-air cinema will continue on July 19 with the film Parallel Mothers by the famous Pedro Almadóvar who once again cooperates with his muse Penélope Cruz, who received the best female role for this film at the Venice international film festival. On July 24, Ariel Winograd’s film Today We Fix the World will be screened, a production that comes all the way from Argentina and deals with the relationship of father and son.

Closing the film nights on July 26 is a co-production of Denmark and Sweden, A Taste of Hunger, directed by Christoffer Boe. The film follows a couple who sacrifice everything to get a coveted Michelin star for their popular restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark.
