Czech Movies with English subtitles in Prague MAT cinema

Obecna skola movie Have you seen any Czech movie? Probably not and that’s a pity. Don’t you think that once you are actually in Prague it is the best time to change it?

They say that when you are in a foreign country you should try the food that is typical for the country. Shouldn’t it be the same with local movies? At least you have now a great chance to see one.

Czech film maker Zdenek Sverak and his Elementary School (Obecna skola, 1991) was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, and his movie Kolya (Kolja, 1996) won it. Hrebejk’s Divided We Fall (Musime si pomahat, 2000) also received an Oscar nomination. So they can’t be that bad!

I know, you may object that there is a problem called language barriers. Czech is a hard language, one of those hardest in a world. But how about English subtitles?

There is a cinema called Kino MAT, it is at Karlovo Square 19. You can get there very easily with a tram number 4, 6, 10, 16, 18, 22, 23, 24, or with a subway – yellow line B, just get off at station Karlovo Namesti. Here they play Czech movies every day at 6 p.m. or at 8:30 p.m. with English subtitles and one ticket costs 99 CZK.

I hope you will find it interesting.
