Open Air Cinema Strelecky ostrov

Summer is without any doubt my favorite season. I associate it with holidays, traveling, ice-creams, sun and fun, and also with open air cinemas. It is truly different experience to watch a movie under the starry sky and among trees. It is very romantic indeed.

However, I know it is not always so rosy, especially if it gets cold or starts to rain. But if you prepare yourself well, there is nothing to disturb you. So bring an extra sweater and visit Open Air Cinema Strelecky ostrov, because rain will trouble you here no more – they have a large tent which can be erected in case of unpleasant weather conditions. The only thing that can spoil everything is a lightning. On this account only, screening will be cancelled. But I don’t think any stormy weather is expected anytime soon.

Don’t worry if you can’t speak Czech. Czech films that are screened there are with English subtitles and English films are not dubbed but subtitled again. You can choose from variety of films. From Czech films (all with English subtitles) I recommend you Roming on August 11, or Sileni (Lunacy in English) on August 19.

For kids, or anybody who is interested, open air cinema screens also Shrek the Third on August 8, The Simpsons movie on August 25, Spiderman 3 on August 29, and Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix on August 31.

Of course there are much more films, one every night. So if those movies I mentioned don’t interest you, don’t hesitate to visit Strelecky island, and I am sure you will find something you would like to see. If not the films, then maybe concerts or theater performances, which are also held there, will please you. Not to mention that a bar is there for you as well, open until midnight.

The screening starts at 9 pm and the tickets are available one hour before the screening. The price is 100 CZK but there are discounts for students. The Open Air Cinema Strelecky ostrov runs till September 1.

Strelecky ostrov is one of the islands in the river Vltava. You will reach it by taking trams 6, 9, 12, 20, 22, 23 to station Ujezd, or trams 6, 9, 10, 14, 17, 18, 22, 23 to station Narodni divadlo. Walk towards the middle of the bridge where there is a stairway.
