The Melina Mercouri Hall is run by the Municipality of Hydra, which leases the space for art exhibitions. It is housed in a large stone building located on the east side of the harbor as you head toward Mandraki, past the Historical Archives and Museum, before the canons and the statue of Miaoulis. The building formerly served as a powder magazine.
You will see posters all around town announcing various exhibitions between May and September/October.
The hall is named for Melina Mercouri, a Greek actress, singer, and politician, renowned for her starring role in the movie Phaedra with Anthony Perkins and R. Vallone. Filmed on Hydra, it was a worldwide hit.
