International Movie Month

New movies from around the globe opening every week of March


There is a troubling trend among theaters—the number of international films being played is declining.

Theaters have difficulty promoting and attracting audiences to films from other countries. The Athena Cinema is committed to showcasing films from other cultures, and to demonstrate our commitment, we are bringing in a new, critically-acclaimed international film each week during the month of March. We hope Athens will join us in welcoming stories from other cultures.
