For the past 100 years, Greeks have enjoyed watching the latest Hollywood blockbusters and old classics under the stars. At Hellenic Arts Fest, we will be presenting two classic films for you to enjoy in the spirit of open air cinema in our leafy courtyard. Sit back, relax and enjoy a balmy summer night's screening of Mermaids and Rascals (Γοργόνες και Μάγκες).
Please note: due to Covid, street food will no longer be available to purchase so please bring along a picnic or shareplate (food only, no alcohol) to share during the film. However, popcorn, icecream and beverages will be available to purchase on the night.
Doors open at 6.30pm.
Screenings to start shortly after sunset (approx. 8.30pm).
The second film is Mermaids and Rascals.
Mermaids and Rascals is a classic 1960s Greek-language comedy starring Mary Chronopoulou, the darling of Greece’s golden era of cinema. It is a theatrical adaptation of one of the most iconic and successful Greek musicals.
Petros and Flora, an Athenian race-car driver and actress respectively, are entrepreneurial competitors who both try to buy cheap land on a Greek island in the hopes that they can on-sell it to foreign investors. During their stay, a comedy of errors ensues before they each find true love.
This light-hearted film has references to ancient Greek tragedy and is presented with English subtitles.
