The Film Society of Samothraki has changed its name, and will be from now on: Samothraki Arthouse Cinema "Lucia Rikaki".
Our decision reflects our desire to promote the important artistic and educational work of Lucia Rikaki. We also felt compelled to show our gratitude to the family of Lucia Rikaki, for their recognition and contribution to our Film Society, in the remote island of Samothraki.
About Samothraki Arthouse Cinema:
At the island of Samothraki, there was only one movie theater, and it was closed in the '80s. From 2006 on, there is an active Film Society, which this year has been renamed after Lucia Rikaki, after a generous donation by the family of the notable director.
Screenings are held at the Cultural Centre "Ergostasio", a former factory of sweet conserves, which has been suitably arranged. Screenings are made using a projector and dvd reader or a laptop. During the winter, there are weekly screenings and entrance is free or donations can be made at will. In the summer, we have daily screenings with tickets.
