Multiplex or a traditional cinema?

Traditional old cinemas are more and more replaced by multiplexes in Prague. There used to be almost 60 cinemas in various districts of the city, but those days are gone. There are only 12 classic cinemas left at the present.

New multiplexes with many screens are built mostly out of the centre of Prague, as a part of big shopping centres. They offer mostly commercial movies and their programs are very similar. On the other hand, there are alternative cinemas such as Aero or Svetozor, which screen quality movies and have a devoted audience.

However, many cinemas, that used to be an integral part of the cultural life in Prague, have disappeared: Alfa, Pariz, Hvezda, Jalta, Illusion and others. Luckily, there are still some good old cinemas left: for example the cinema Lucerna with a unique historical decoration, near the Wenceslas Square in the centre of Prague.
