Finally on 15th September 2011, Astron cinema, 37 Kifissias Avenue, Ampelokipi, was not declared as a listed building by the majority of the members of the Central Council for Modern Monuments. The general opinion was that this building does not meet the necessary criteria so as to be declared a monument.
The Cultural and Environmental Committee of Ampelokipi and MOnuMENTA invite the Minister of Culture, Mr Pavlos Geroulanos, who is interested in the Greek cinema, to take a stance regarding the protection of Astron cinema. The future of "Astron" lies in the hands of Pavlos Geroulanos and it is his decision that will pave the way for either the protection or destruction of Astron.
MOnuMENTA, invites you to send a petition card directly to Mr Geroulanos’s email address urging him to protect Astron cinema. This card is posted on the website of MOnuMENTA. Sending hundreds of cards can bring positive results! Take this action and you might save the building.
