Hlavní 2061, Český Těšín, Czech Republic
Avion, a reading room and café, a place on the banks of the Olše river with an unique atmosphere where history and the present intertwine. Both the original interwar Avion and its current younger successor were and are unusual and popular places for meeting, exploring and cultural enjoyment. Music, literary, art, film and discussion salons, excellent coffee and daily fresh cakes, books, newspapers and magazines to read - and a menu to choose from. It has been part of our community since 2022 and has hosted countless screenings. Check out what Avion director Dana Zipserová says about Avion in this video.

Janská 7, Opava, Czech Republic
Small, mysterious and unique. That's how one could describe the KUPE, which is located in close proximity to Opava's East railway station. You might miss it at first, until you notice the white (and in the dark, luminous) legs sticking out of the chimney. This KUPE hallmark won't leave you in peace and will make you want to explore KUPE more closely. The place is managed by Vladimír Peringer, who is behind the whole transformation of the dilapidated water tower into a cultural and artistic space and is also a big part of the overall management of KUPE. The venue is introduced by its PR manager Terezie Krejčí in the video below.
Soon you can look forward to the documentaries How I Became a Partisan, The Sailor, Leaving Beginnings Behind, Colors of Tobi or Once Upon a Youth (specific dates will be available soon here on our website in the programme section).
Hradební 83, Český Krumlov, Czech Republic
Prádelna is trying to build a cultural and community centre in Český Krumlov in a former dry-cleaning and laundry facility that has not been used for years. "Documentary film is often unjustly neglected in cinemas, so it's great that there are alternative options for public screenings that stimulate social discussion," says Martin Zeman, who arranges screenings at the Prádelna. Hear what he has to say about Prádelna below.
