Summer Cinema is Back at Prague 6’s Klubovna
Summer is fast approaching, and open-air cinemas are once again booming in Prague, with more and more options popping up in the Czech capital every year.
One of the newer venues is Klubovna, the Prague 6 cultural hangout and concert venue with a large garden that is perfect for open-air movie screenings during the summer season. From this month, Klubovna has begun their third year of summer cinema screenings.
Movies are screened every Wednesday, and admission is a mere 30 CZK. Films start at dusk (20:30 or 21:00, depending on the month).
Klubovna’s summer cinema lineup features a nice mix of recent hits and Czech classics; earlier this month, the venue kicked off the 2018 season with a screening of Jiří Menzel’s Oscar-winning classic Closely Watched Trains.
The next screening will take place tomorrow night, May 23, when Klubovna will show the acclaimed Polish drama The Last Family (in Polish with Czech subtitles). That will be followed on May 30 by a screening of the excellent Czech nature documentary Planeta Česko.
Popular with students along with a diverse mixture of other crowds, Klubovna features a small bar with assorted drinks and snacks along with a burger truck (only occasionally open).
While the 30 CZK entry for Klobovna’s summer cinema screenings is a bargain, this year they’ll have to compete with MeetFactory’s summer cinema, which will bring open-air films to the Prague 5 space every Wednesday starting next week for free.
But be sure to also check Klubovna during the rest of the week, when the hangout presents live music gigs, theater performances, and much more.
Here’s what’s on tap at Klubovna over the upcoming weeks:
May 23: The Last Family (in Polish with Czech subtitles)
May 30: Planeta Česko (in Czech)
