Prague’s Kino Světozor celebrates 15 years by revisiting some modern classics

By Ryan Keating-Lambert

Kino Světozor will celebrate its 15th anniversary next week with a unique selection of award-winning modern classics by Wes Anderson, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino and more… and tickets start from just 100Kč.

From Friday May 24th – Thursday May 30th, the arthouse cinema will present screenings of some of its most treasured and popular releases over the past 15 years – English friendly films include Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and a live capture of the National Theatre’s Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

Non-English friendly titles include Václav Havel documentary Citizen Havel and a special presentation of Kinoautomat: One Man and his House – a historical theatre/cinema performance which originally played at the Czechoslovak Pavilion at Expo ’67 in Montreal, Canada.

Although the actual building is more than 100 years old, the cinema itself is still very much in its youth and thinks of the anniversary as a coming-of-age celebration.
