Back in September of this year, CitySpy told you about a fantastic newly-opened venue for cinephiles in Prague called Screenshot (article here: https://cz.cityspy.network/prague/not-so-hidden-gems/not-so-hidden-gems-vol-4-screenshot/)
Located in Prague 1 just behind Bila Labut, Screenshot has since taken off as one of the must visit spots for locals and tourists alike. Everyone appreciates the chill vibe, great drinks, easy atmosphere, and especially the screening room!
Having recently wrapped up their tribute to Czech cinema throughout the years, they dove head first into a special presentation from the Festival of Iranian Cinema, and now they’re looking to get in on some New Year’s party action and so, were back talking about this awesome venue.
Tomorrow night (that’s New Year’s Eve, if you’ve still been sleeping off that Christmas feast), Screenshot is hosting their Silvestr Party.
The crew from Screenshot love a good party as much as they love great films, music, and fine cocktails so they’ve gathered them all to make the beginning of the new decade a night to remember!
So what’s going down? Why should you plan to make Screenshot a stop on your party circuit or, better yet, the place to be on New Year’s Eve? I’ll tell you:
The bar will open at 8pm (20:00) and mixologist Henry Trung will put one of their specialty drinks in your hand to get the party started. Relax yourself into the festivities with some great conversation or even some quiet reflection about your past decade and how you plan to crank things up in 2020.
Then, at 9:30pm (21:30) you’ll head downstairs with your fellow revelers (if you’re in the mood, of course) to watch 2007’s Independent Spirit Award-winner IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS which has been appropriately programmed for the evening.
Here’s the description of the film: Broke and alone on New Year’s Eve, Wilson just wants to spend the rest of a very bad year in bed. But, when his best friend convinces him to post a personal ad, he meets a woman bent on finding the right guy to be with at midnight.
This “funny, quirky, and bittersweet indie” comes from the producer of BEFORE SUNSET and DAZED AND CONFUSED and stars Scoot McNairy, an actor who has been on a major roll in the last few years with projects like Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico, HBO’s True Detective, Netflix series Godless, GONE GIRL, and Academy Award-winner for Best Picture ARGO. You can check out the trailer for the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp6M63yijpg
After the movie, step into the adjoining bar where you can enjoy some more of those excellent cocktails while you (and your date?) dance 2019 into the history books while DJ Oozlum spins the sick beats.
If you’re not wiped out after all that, stick around for yet another screening as Screenshot presents Taika Waititi’s hilarious Vampire mockumentary WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS at 2:30am on January 1st.
Aside from Waititi’s latest film JOJO RABBIT, this might just be the funniest film you’ll see in all of 2020, and if you’re not already a fan of Waititi from films like THOR: RAGNAROK or his recent appearance as IG-11 in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, you certainly will be after this.
Not going to share the trailer or description for the film. You’ll get the gist from the image above, but if you haven’t seen WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, don’t look it up. Just go, party at Screenshot, and dive in. We promise you’ll love it.
The entry fee for the night is 700 crowns and it’s definitely worth it.
Screenshot is located at: Petrská 1132/4 in Prague 1.
