Μ.Τ.Ε.: There wasn’t a single weekend that we weren’t going
to the cinema and our children we raised them there.
Μ.Τ.Ε.: It was there that we all came together. Yes.
RES.: Every weekend then there were screenings of Greek cinema?
Μ.Τ.Ε.: A lot, a lot, a lot, the movies which were made in Greece
were immediately coming here. I’ll tell you about an incident when a movie came
out ‘Kotsos in EEC’, I don’t know if you’re aware of it. It was about Karamanlis,
the old Karamanlis, not the current Karamanlis, who put Greece into the EEC.
RES.: Yes, yes, yes.
Μ.Τ.Ε.: I’ll tell you, we went twice and we couldn’t
get in, the que was full. It’s between Bernardaud and Park Avenue, I don’t know if you saw it.
RES.: Yes, yes.
Μ.Τ.Ε.: Eh, we couldn’t. Twice and both of them
we didn’t get it. And this movie we watched afterwards on video.
We couldn’t get in. So much was Hellenism going to the cinema. It was Greece, the nostalgy never left, nor is it going to leave… nostalgy doesn’t leave.
