Only good films
This is the subtitle of the newly founded cinema in Rytířská Street which has already presented three interesting films. The first visitors at the opening projections had a chance to see inside a brothel from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century in the French film entitled The House of Tolerance. People showed huge interest in the most discussed contemporary Iranian film Nadera and Simin, A Separation. The third film was the experimental film by Jean-Luc Godard called Socialism.
Purely art cinema
The cinema has the capacity of approximately eighty spectators and its ambition is not to compete with the established Prague cinemas. Its objective is to supplement the current offer with a service that until now had been missing in the capital city – a purely art cinema. Its main aim, is however, to provide a space for high quality films that multiplex cinemas only show at inconvenient times or not at all. Studio Béla’s programme also includes the romantic film The White Material and the film Enter the Void.
Fancy something to eat? Carrot in a bread roll!
The cinema is located on the second floor of the Hungarian Institute in Prague in Rytířská Street. Film projections take place every Thursday and Friday at eight o‘clock. In the future, the organizers are also planning to hold discussions, presentations of short films and projections of Czech films in the presence of their creators. The cinema also houses a gallery and a little refreshment spot where the visitors can taste a vegetarian speciality – a carrot in a bread roll.
