The best alternative and artsy cinemas in Prague

Tired of always going to the same multiplex, taste-less and similar-looking cinema halls screening only the latest Hollywood blockbusters or Academy Awards nominees?

You’re in luck, for Prague has no shortage of lesser-known, independent and charm-filled little cinemas to offer you an alternative movie experience anytime of the week. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the main ones where the Kafkadesk team enjoys going the most.

 

Kino Pilotu

Definitely one of our personal favourites: Kino Pilotu is a lovely, hidden-away cinema located in the Prague 10 Vrsovice district, next to the famous Krymská street, home to the city’s bustling hipster culture. Even if you hang around there a lot, you might have passed it without noticing it.

With more than half a dozen screenings in its two cinema halls, Kino Pilotu offers everything from the latest foreign productions to home-made Czech movies, with a wide range of English-friendly movies as well and great offer for kids and families. A historic art-house in Prague that used to be operated since the first half of the 20th century by the Union of Czechoslovak Pilots (hence the name), Kino Pilotu was entirely restored in 2016.

Before or after your screening, don’t hesitate to have a drink in the cinema’s small bar and cafe, or try out the excellent choice of beers in the Bad Flash microbrewery located right in front of it – or, for that matter, any other place in Krymska.

Address: Donská 19 – Praha Vršovice

Kino Aero

Located in Žižkov, Kino Aero is slightly more off from the city center than most of the other venues listed here but nevertheless makes for a great starting point for a cinephile evening out….
