The Andros film club was founded in 1995 by year-round inhabitants of Andros who wanted to provide more options for entertainment on the island of Andros during the winter months.
The cinema club is run as a non-profit organisation by a team of volunteer members. Financially, it relies on the yearly subscriptions of its members, revenue from the bar and from ticket sales.
Its volunteer members must carry out all the usual tasks and functions needed to keep a cinema running: designing and distributing the programme, coordinating and ordering the films from distributors, transporting the reels, film editing, operating the projector, on-the-door ticket sales, making bar snacks and cakes for the interval, offering drinks, serving, cleaning the rooms, etc.
The cinema has been operating continuously for the past 12 years. Its annual season begins in autumn (end-September/beginning-October) and usually finishes in spring (beginning-May). Films are shown at the Cinema/Theatre of Chora every Saturday and Wednesday at around 8.30pm.
The club aims to show high-quality cinema. It regularly programmes seasons of films by Greek directors, films from festivals such as the Drama Film Festival and also holds educational screenings. In addition, it will happily organise special screenings on behalf of other organisations or clubs. More information about our programme can be found by searching the film archive on our programme page.
The club is open to everyone and you can see a film either by paying the simple entrance fee (5€), or by becoming a member. For more information see our Tickets & membership page.
