For sixteen years, from July to mid-September, cinema lovers in Nicosia have the opportunity to enjoy a diverse programme of good quality films, under the summer sky, in the capital’s only remaining open-air cinema.

The ‘Summer Screenings Marathon’, a popular event amongst both children and people of all ages, is organised by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and Theatro Ena, in cooperation with the Friends of Cinema Society.

The Ministry appreciates the Marathon’s significant contribution in providing enjoyable and quality entertainment during the summer months, enriching the Capital’s social and cultural life. The films, both recent and classic, are selected based on their ability to showcase different ideas and cinematographic trends, promote cinema education whilst offering an enjoyable spectacle.

Under the stars, spectators can begin a journey into distant places and times, through good old classics, children’s movies, the works of Cypriot directors, award-winning and contemporary films and short tributes.
