- Feb 14, 2012 — Riots destroy Athens cinemas
Located in the centre of Athens, close to the Parliament building. This elegant Neo-Classical style building was built in 1870. It was converted into a theatre in 1904, and became a cinema in 1912. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels.
The Attikon Cinema was one of the host cinemas for the annual Athens Film Festival and was operated by Cinemax Class. The building was petrol bombed by rioters on 12th February 2012, the fire caused considerable damage. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” was the last film shown.
The adjacent Apollon Renault Cinema, a single screen art house cinema in the same building (opened in the 1960’s) was also a victim, as was the nearby Asty Cinema.
