Ideas for Summer Evenings: Open-air Cinemas in Prague

Are you bored of indoor cinemas that have been open a little while ago after some more coronavirus restrictions had been lifted? Or are you just looking for a place to spend some free time? If you enjoy outdoor activities, open-air cinemas will be perfect for you! There are a couple of nice places in the capital that play different movies and also hold various events, including both free and paid ones. Find out more about them in this article.

Open-air cinemas are the perfect choice for those who are sick of sitting at home or in general tired of being constantly inside of some buildings. Watching movies outside allows us to enjoy the fresh air and a good story at the same time! Moreover, we can bring along our friends or family or even pets to join us, which makes us enjoy the evening even more!

So, let’s begin with the list!

Letní kino Lihovar

This year, the screening takes place at a temporary location – MeetFactory – a former distillery premises (Prague 5), so you can expect a bit of post-apocalyptic vibe there, but in a good way!

Each Wednesday, you can go there to see a different movie for free! You can bring your own drinks and snacks, however, they provide a snack bar, so you might be interested in that as well.

The screenings take place every Wednesday at 9:30 PM, and the place is open from 08:00 PM. If the screening is cancelled, the cinema will notify you at 07:00 PM latest.

Program for the upcoming days:

14/07  Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (USA, Czech subtitles)
