I believe summer open air cinemas are simply the best and Prague is luckily full of them. Anežka Live!!! or Letní Kino Anežský Klášter festival only takes place during summer and is organized by the National Movie Archive together with the National Gallery – that makes for quite a package considering there are English subtitles always included and, as a bonus, the awesome location in the old historical centre of Prague. Take a deep breath in here and look around you – this cinema is different.
Just at the side of the amazing Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia there are plenty of deck chairs and an auditorium with wooden stairs. The events are for free, you can buy bottle of beer or a small snack there. If you wanna save some extra money, bring your own drinks, no one really cares, just have respect and don’t take it as a drinking game, cinema lovers are pretty serious with their stuff, so no talking during the movie. 🙂
Because the program varies, always check in here. Apart from movies, you can take a yoga class, come to see a local concert or participate in an artistic workshop.
Extra: The whole monastery area can be entered for free and has some really beautiful corners, statues and interesting seating possibilities during the day – perfect for eating your own packed lunch or reading a book. Consider a visit to the National Gallery collection as well; it’s full of interesting medieval sculptures in contrast with contemporary arts.
