FREE Summer Cinema Begins at Prague’s MeetFactory, Every Wednesday

Open-air cinema is coming back to Prague in a big way this season, with no less than a dozen venues in central Prague unveiling summer cinema screenings this May & June. 

One of those venues is popular Prague 5 club, concert venue, art gallery, and all-around cultural space MeetFactory, which will kick of their summer cinema 2018 season tonight and continue every Wednesday throughout the summer. 

The festivities kick off at MeetFactory May 30 with a screening of the excellent slice of modern Americana The Florida Project, starring an Oscar-nominated Willem Dafoe. In June, the venue will screen the Oscar-nominated drama Call Me By Your Name along with a trio of foreign-language features (subtitled in Czech). 

In July, MeetFactory’s summer cinema will turn the focus to music in film, with a screenings of concert films and other music-related features including Nick Cave’s 20,000 Days on Earth, Nico, 1988, the wonderful Searching for Sugar Man, and Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars.

Films are screened in MeetFactory’s courtyard every Wednesday from dusk completely free of charge. If the daily selection at MeetFactory doesn’t light your fire, also check out the summer cinema schedule at Prague 6’s Klubovna, which will also screen a movie each Wednesday (for 50 CZK).
