In partnership with the 8th Athens Open Air Film Festival and as part of this year’s Classics Illustrated: Reading on the Big Screen tribute, we’re delighted to bring you a selection of masterpieces of British cinema, featuring some of the best cinematic adaptations of literary works.

Legendary book adaptations on the big screen, much-loved award-winning films and acclaimed directors await cinema-goers at the 8th Athens Open Air Film Festival.

The Athens Open Air Film Festival screenings will be hosted at a variety of venues around the Greek capital – including parks, squares, courtyards, museums, archaeological sites and summer cinemas – to better acquaint residents and visitors alike with a number of well-known and perhaps lesser-known city spots. Join us for a celebration of cinema provided by one of the capital’s most vibrant festivals, where all screenings and wrap-around events are free to the public.


The films included in the tribute are:
