Kinobus: Prague’s free mobile summer cinema returns for 2023 season

Free outdoor cinema will return to locations across Prague from next week as Prague’s public transport authority DPP launches their popular Kinobus for the summer 2023 season. This year, Kinobus will offer a record 22 films in 11 locations around the Czech capital.

Kinobus 2023 will run from June 26 through September 7, and move to a different location in Prague each week. Most of the locations are on the outskirts of the city, in areas that don’t have a dedicated summer cinema program.

Films start from sundown (between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) and typically screen in their original language with Czech subtitles, though there are a number of English-language features on the Kinobus schedule this year.

The debut destination of this year’s Kinobus will be at Náměstí Jiřího Berana in Čakovice, which will get things started with a screening of the new Czech comedy Emergency Situation (Mimořádná událost) from director Jiří Havelka. About half of the movies screened by Kinobus this year are be Czech productions.

This year’s Kinobus will also return to locations in Suchdol, Horní Měcholupy, Kbely, and Řepy after being absent in previous years. Letňany, Prosek, Zličín, Hůrka, Sídliště Řepy, the Park at Chodov Fortress, and Vítkov Hill, closer to the city center, will also be stops on the 2023 Kinobus journey. This year’s schedule focuses on lighter films, with a total of 13 comedies.

English-language films screening during this year’s Kinobus summer cinema include Top Gun: Maverick, and recent European hits like The Three Musketeers: D’Artagnan, starring Eva Green, and The Good Boss, with Javier Bardem, will also be featured. Animated movies like The Super Mario Bros. MoviePuss in Boots: The Last Wish, and DC League of Super-Pets will screen in Czech-dubbed versions.

All Kinobus screenings are free to attend, and come with total of 200 seats though visitors are welcome to sit wherever they like. Blankets are recommended for the cooler late-night evenings, but can also be rented for a refundable deposit of 100 crowns.

This year’s Kinobus has a brand-new screen, and the projection equipment was just upgraded in 2022. A new refreshment stand will accompany this year’s bus, offering Bakalář beer, Aperol spritz, quesadillas, and much more.

While screenings are free to attend, viewers are invited to donate to the charity SOS Children’s Villages, which supports children without parental care and families at risk. Last year, Kinobus raised 18,000 crowns for the charity through on-site donations at screenings.

A full schedule of films and locations for Kinobus 2023 can be found at the DPP website.
