Summer Cinema in Prague

Summer is well on its way and one of the best ways to spend those delightfully long summer evenings is to visit one of Prague’s outdoor cinemas.  Just imagine sitting back, refreshing drink in hand, watching the sun gradually dip below the skyline whilst enjoying one of your favourite films,  finally checking out a recent blockbuster that you didn’t get round to seeing at the cinema, or being surprised by a film that you’d never even heard of before.  Here are a few of the outdoor cinemas that will be popping up all over the city as the nights get longer and warmer.

Tiskarna na Vzduchu

Tiskarna na Vzduchu is one of Prague’s hippest outdoor bars. They regularly have live music, nights dedicated to dancing, workshops and dancing. Starting with on May 30th, they will also be screening a film every Tuesday evening. The first film to be shown will be Mad Max (2015). Tiskarna na Vzduchu can be found at the edge of Stromovka Park and is very close to the tram stop Vystaviste Holesovice. They offer Uneticke (my favourite Czech beer!) as well as various wines, cocktails and lemonades. For more information see their online programme.

Remember to bing picnic blankets, drinks and snacks. There is likely to be more information closer to the time, so keep and eye on the facebook group.
