Free Summer Cinema Returns to Prague’s Cross Club
Summer is quickly returning to the Czech Republic, and so is one of the country’s booming recent traditions: open-air summer cinema at outdoor locations around the country.
Prague has no less than a dozen open-air cinemas that pop up around this time of year, and one of the first of those to appear in 2018 is at eclectic Prague 7 club and multipurpose venue Cross Club, which will start next Wednesday.
On May 9, Cross Club will kick off the summer cinema season in Prague with a screening of the 2016 hit French comedy Two is a Family, starring Clémence Poésy (In Bruges) and The Intouchables’ Omar Sy.
All of Cross Club’s summer cinema screenings will be presented in their original language with Czech subtitles, and entry is completely free of charge. Films will screen every Wednesday after dusk, currently at 21:30.
Food & beverages can be purchased from the nearby Cross Club bar.
Coming up in May is Hayao Miyazaki’s classic Spirited Away along with some recent international hits that are currently playing in Czech cinemas like Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin and the hand-drawn Loving Vincent.
Here’s what’s in store at Cross Club’s summer cinema in May:
May 9: Two is a Family (in French with Czech subtitles)
May 16: The Death of Stalin
May 23: Spirited Away (in Japanese with Czech subtitles)
May 30: Loving Vincent
