Prague Film Summer! 40 Crown Movies All Month at Kino Aero

What can you get for 40 crowns (roughly $1.75)?

In Prague, that’ll get you a half a liter of Pilsner, an espresso, or a small bottle of water at an average restaurant in the center of the city.

And throughout the month of August, it’ll also get you a ticket to one of the top films from the past year at one of Prague’s coolest cinemas.

A regular ticket at Kino Aero is already a bargain at around 120 crowns, but all month long the Žižkov cinema is slicing that in third for their daily screenings beginning at 18:00.

Most of the films are in English, and screenings of the Czech movies The Teacher, A Prominent Patient (Masaryk), and Ice Mother will come with English subtitles.

Here’s the full schedule:

  • August 1: Captain Fantastic
  • August 2: T2 Trainspotting
  • August 3: Arrival
  • August 4: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (at 17:45)

If you can’t make it to Kino Aero in Žižkov, two central Prague cinemas are also offering discount summer film screenings throughout August.

Prague 1’s Kino Mat and Kino Lucerna are offering daily bargain summer screenings this month, but the central location will cost you – both cinemas are charging a whopping 50 crowns.
