Top Cinemas in Prague 

During this uneasy period, when we all have to adapt to new circumstances, it is very simple to get depressed. Isn’t it a wonderful chance to go to the cinema theatre and switch your attention to a different reality? Take an enormous popcorn box, coca-cola, and stuff yourself.  Or maybe you will just spice up your free time when you are going out with your friends, watching a new blockbuster.  

“My films are therapy for my debilitating depression. In institutions, people weave baskets. I make films.” – Woody Allen

When you are watching a great movie for the first time it’s like the first days, when you are in love with somebody. Have you noticed it? You think that this time is being super special and you haven’t felt like this before. And with someone, these feelings stay forever with you, but with someone, you do forget it very quickly. Do you understand what I mean? It is very similar to movies but the difference is that you can have a chance to admire new movies without any effort and don’t have to look for it. Sometimes you laugh and have fun, sometimes you cry. And only you choose what kind of movie you would like, meanwhile life sometimes is unpredictable, right?
