See the Year’s Best Films in Prague for 69 CZK Through July 18

Need to catch up on some of 2018’s top movies?

The semi-annual Best Film Fest returns to Prague cinemas Kino Lucerna, Kino Atlas, Kino Evald and Kino Mat from today, July 12 through next Wednesday, July 18, with some of the best movies to screen in local cinemas over the first half of the year. 

Best of all: ticket prices run a low-low 69 CZK per film. 

This summer’s Best Film Fest includes some of my favorite 2018 films that have played in Czech cinemas over the first half of the year, including Red Sparrow and Wes Anderson’s beautifully-animated Isle of Dogs

Oscar-winning hits that premiered in Czech cinemas earlier in 2018 like Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Phantom Thread, The Shape of Water, Call Me by Your Name, and The Darkest Hour will also be featured during the Best Film Fest. 

And if you’ve missed out on big-screen blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, or Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, here’s your chance to catch up at a discount. 

Prague’s Best Film Fest also features some of the top Czech films to screen so far this year, including Jan Švankmajer’s wonderful Hmyz (Insect) and the excellent Czech nature documentary Planeta Česko (Wilder Than Wilderness).

The semi-annual Best Film Fest takes place twice a year in central Prague cinemas Kino Lucerna, Kino Atlas, Kino Evald and Kino Mat, typically in July and December. While it doesn’t include any new cinematic offerings, it’s a great opportunity to see films on the big screen for the low price of 69 CZK, less than half of the price of a ticket to a Prague multiplex.
