This is a two-screen movie house just off Wenceslas Square providing a standard mix of (80 percent) American features and (20 percent) Czech films. Films are screened from 11a until 9p or 10p daily. American films nearly always appear in English with Czech subtitles (look out for the word titulky in schedules). The exception is children's films which are normally dubbed. Unfortunately, film posters display only a film's Czech title, leaving non-Czech speakers to puzzle out the film's identity from publicity stills or stars' names.
