They tell me that once upon a time the Pagrati Alsos, that lovely green space also known as ‘the little Forest of Pagrati’, once had an outdoor theater. Eventually the theater was replaced by a children’s playground, perhaps a sign of changing demographics. But demographics shifts continue and now an active group of people in the neighborhood have started getting together to organize various events in the park just announced Wednesday night at the Movies. The movies are screened in the basket ball court in the center of the park, and of course they are free. Showtime is 9 pm and the great thing is that you can bring your own food and drink to the show.
The Alsos is located at Spirou Merkouri and Eftichidou streets, a 5 minute walk from the Old Olympic Stadium or catch the number 2, 4 or 11 trolley from Syntagma and it will drop you in front (get off near the McDonald’s).
