Go to the cinema in North Cyprus

To creep into the cinema darkness and cool down in the air conditioning can be a good idea in the summer heat.

In North Cyprus there are film theaters in Güzelyurt, Girne (Kyrenia), Famagusta and Lefkosa (Nicosia). All cinemas are related to the supermarket chain Lemar and called Lemar Cineplex. Since about a year back there is also Avenue Cinemax on Dereboyu in Lefkosa; a modern facility with three salongs and coffee shops etc. In Cyprus you always have a break in the middle of the film for refreshments and to stretch your legs. A nice thing that most Europeans aren’t accustomed to.
