Pallas Theater


The iconic PALLAS theatre was built between 1931-1932 and was the most notable cinema of the interwar period in the Balkans. It was designed in a neoclassical modern style, based on French models. The magnificent entrance is dominated by colourful marbles and its impressive staircase, while in the foyer there is walnut panelling, Art Deco stained glass and ornate mosaics. The theatre originally had 2500 seats with a characteristic undulating ceiling.

The theatre was completely renovated in the early 2000s, with respect for its architecture and retaining all the historical features that make it a contemporary monument. The stage and the stalls were redesigned to serve even the most demanding musical and dance performances, and were equipped with the most modern audiovisual technology.  The PALLAS reopened its doors to the public in 2006 with the production “2” by Dimitris Papaioannou.

The theatre foyer was transformed under the direction of set designer Eva Nathena, creating an Art Deco space of unique aesthetics, operated for theatregoers by the Panas Group, which also undertakes the catering services alongside the theatrical functions and events that are held.

It is located on Voukourestiou Street, one of the most central shopping streets of the Greek capital, in the building of the Army Pension Fund. It can be reached by a variety of transport means including Metro lines 2 and 3. There are many hotels nearby.


The Pallas Theatre hosts performances, concerts, events, film premières, stand-up comedy, conferences and spectacles with the ambition to create a varied programme of high artistic standards.
