Fun Nights at the Old Open-Air Movie Theatre

Published on April 14, 2019 by Elisabeth Powers

Skiathos Island: Fun Nights at the Open-Air Movie Theatre

Of course everyone visiting Skiathos in Greece comes for the typical island fun: warm sunny weather, lush green vegetation, beautiful sandy beaches with crystal clear blue water, boat rides, its wonderfully laid back and friendly locals, and great food.

And yet the island offers at least one more fun thing to do: go to the movies! In the middle of the village main street, you will find the inconspicuous entrance to an open-air theatre.

Once you have your tickets and walk up the incline, you will find your self in a very large, walled space filled with rows of chairs facing a huge screen. There are remnants of the old roof and the broken beams no one feels the need to remove. Pick a seat - preferably one of the many with a table attached - and head for the bar in the back to stock up on soda, wine or beer, popcorn, hot dogs or candy.

Settle in to enjoy one of the latest films, while the moon rises and seagulls and swallows swoop across the screen.

All movies are in original English version, with Greek subtitles.

For a special night out, watch “Mamma Mia”, the ABBA musical, and get swept up in the singing and dancing party that invariable breaks out at the first note. Even for non-ABBA fans, a fun and worthwhile evening, thanks to the lively atmosphere and the amazing cinematography featuring Skiathos in the staring role, which put the island on the map once and for all.

Meet The Author
Hello, my name is Elisabeth Powers. As one of three happy owners, I welcome you to our Villa Maestrali, the family vacation home our parents built in the early 1970's on Skiathos island.  After working as an actor and a translator, and raising a family, my main focus is now managing this magical place, and helping our guests create wonderful memories. We have been listed on OwnersDirect, Flipkey etc. for 10 years, enjoying fully booked seasons until the industry changed. Our goal now, is to gain independency via our own website so as to recreate direct contact with our guests and spare them the extra booking fees now imposed by the big sites. We travel from Berlin, Germany to Skiathos several times a year for longer periods to look after our Villa Maestrali, keep it at its high standard and get ready to welcome guests to the new season.
