Attica Regional Governor, Giorgos Patoulis, has confirmed that the renowned Lycabettus Hill theatre in Athens, Greece will be ready for use by August 30 this year.

The iconic theatre, which has been closed since 2008, has been upgraded in a 3.9 million euro renovation project, including refurbishment of seats, a new canteen, lighting, fire and communications systems, as well as the external structure, hill and its facilities.

An agreement was reached between the region, the Greek Ministry of Culture, and the Municipality of Athens for the theatre to be ready for use this summer in time for a large festival scheduled for September.

The City of Athens pledged in 2021 that the theatre could be operational by the summer of 2022, which did not occur.
