Anastasios Liagkris works for the cinema Alexandra and the open-air theatre Laura in Athens - both members of Europa Cinemas since 2011. Anastasios is 26 years old and and was literally born "in the cinema", working there from a young age and learning the job from his father.
 Cinema is a family business: Anastasios’ grandfather was in charge of the film programming of more than 8 cinemas in Athens during the 1960s. However, the arrival of television brought an abrupt halt to his activities, as the audience shrank dramatically, and he had to start from scratch. His grandfather managed to recover thanks to Laura, his only film theatre left. He then purchased Alexandra, a film theatre in the heart of Athens, and as of today, these are the two film theatres ran by Anastasios’ father.
