Brno, July 4 (BD) – From 8 July to 31 August, the courtyard of Brno City Hall at Dominikánská 2 will be transformed into a summer cinema, equipped with comfortable armchairs in the auditorium. 

The program will include high-quality cinema from Europe and around the world, including 18 Czech films. Also part of the selection are the Japanese drama “Drive my car”, French movies “La belle époque” and “Notre-Dame On Fire”, and Nordic movies including “Drunk”. German films including “One-way to Moscow”, “Run Lola Run” and “Goodbye Lenin!” are only CZK 50 to enter thanks to the partnership with the Goethe Institut.

“On the very first night, 8 July, when admission is free, we are showing the already cult romantic comedy Amélie, which is returning to domestic screens after 20 years. The cinema gates will open at 8pm, and the audience will be treated to snacks, drinks and music in the French spirit,” said Monika Šimková from the Noční motýl association. 

“The program of the Brno-střed Summer Cinema will close on Wednesday 31 August with the premiere of David Havas’ documentary “Too Late to Die Young”, which will be combined with the Brno launch of the documentary and an expanded edition of the book by Ivo Pospíšil, music legend and founder of the band Garage. Personally, I am looking forward to this documentary and I will not miss it. I cordially invite you to come too,” said the mayor of Brno-střed, Vojtěch Mencl (ODS). 

“A new feature of this year’s Brno-střed Summer Cinema is the cooperation with the Meeting Brno festival. We will be screening Emanuele Ruggiero’s film “Fashion goes green”. The premiere will take place on Wednesday 27 July with the participation of the filmmakers,” added Šimková.
