The future and the unknown will never cease to amaze us. They have inspired the most vibrant minds of science fiction like never before. Cinema constantly dreams of what is out there and shows us the road that leads to the wildest adventures, the most unpredictable stories. It unlocks the magic, soothes our fears and takes us to unlikely destinations in time and space.
This summer, Park your Cinema is showing films selected by the Thessaloniki Film Festival that see the future as an exciting ride into the unknown: iconic films of the 80s and 90s (Back to the Future, War Games, The Men with the Blacks, Day of the Groundhog, The Martians Attack, Big, Jurassic Park, The Iron Giant), but also more recent ones (After the Next Day, Wall-E, Interstellar, Microcosm, Ready Player One).
As, after all, we know, the most beautiful adventures are not always the safest - this is what give them their special charm. In the end, however, they assure us that everything will be fine.
This is how we want to look at tomorrow and this is how we will meet it cinematically at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park: with the impatience of a child thirsty for future adventures.
