1984 | Athens | September 14


The Chytirio Theater in the downtown Athens district of Kerameikos is hosting a free screening of Michael Radford's “1984,” based on George Orwell's classic novel about a dystopian future under an oppressive regime and released in the same year. John Hurt and Richard Burton lead the cast in the story of a government employee who loses his identity in the process of rewriting history in a matter that casts his country's leaders in a favorable light. His travails reveal how, in such a closely monitored society, there is no escape from “big brother.” Showtime is 8.30 p.m. and the film is in English with Greek subtitles.
