Cine Lila is one of the few remaining places that insist on reminding us of the beauty of an older Athens. For us “older” inhabitants of Kipseli (who used to go to “Kipselaki”, “Pigalle” etc) it was rather remote, but still a favourite destination. It opened in 1967 and today, 51 years later, it still maintains its old vibes and its friendly atmosphere. Enjoying movies in its green garden with the characteristic scent of jasmine and primrose is a uniquely pleasant getaway from the usual daily routine, and a lovely way of ending your day. It provides free Wi-Fi, a bar with the usual necessities, while there are basil plants on the tables – in case you were worried about mosquitos or similar visitors, and every Tuesday and Wednesday it has a 2 for 1 ticket deal. Do we need to say more? Visit it as soon as you get a chance.

Hidden Athens” is a town guide written by people who live in Athens, visit its shops and places, and do not simply copy other texts. We keep record of our town's nice places, especially those concerning entertainment, and anything that impresses us. Our guide is aimed at tourists who want to witness the special parts of Athens (which they will not learn about through a tour guide), but also at anyone who wants to get to know Athens a bit better, and learn beforehand whether a place has something special to offer, whether it is accessible to people with disabilities, whether they can take their dog with them, the prices, etc. We are not interested in writing negative reviews. If we do not like something, it is simply not worth mentioning in “Hidden Athens”.
