Summer Festival Střelák 2007
Press Release: The Kinematograf bratří Čadíků mobile cinema returns to Střelecký ostrov, a river island in the heart of Prague
The summer festival Střelák will traditionally offer a varied program consisting of films, concerts and theatre performances. Prague's cultural life is less active during the summer and the open air cinema on Strelecký ostrov is the one place that introduces an attractive program, especially conceived for the summer holidays in Prague. The island will enliven through the magical world of motion pictures and of captivating melodies. The program will be topped up with events such as theatre performances, charitable events and table-soccer or petanque tournaments. The Summer Festival on Strelecký ostrov will last from June 3rd until September 1st, 2007.
The official Opening Ceremony will take place on June 3rd, 2007 at 8 p.m., with Lucie Bílá as a special guest. The ceremony will culminate with the screening of the movie Pražákům, těm je hej. The event will be attended by major Czech personalities. Free entrance.
• The 11th open air cinema festival presents the very best of the most recent movies as well as "safe bets," films chosen from national and international archives and sorted by theme.
• The beginning of June is traditionally dedicated to Czech films. The open-air cinema is English-speakers friendly, the majority of Czech movies will be thus screened with English subtitles.

7:00pm Václav Havel: ZAHRADNÍ SLAVNOST /Divadlo Husa na provázku/
Václav Havel’s longest played drama in a Czech theatre with the fascinating Tomáš Sýkora.
9:30pm 200 MALÝCH CIGARETEK /Divadlo Husa na provázku/
A song revue of Ballad for a Bandit and of other successful shows.
7:00pm Jiří Jelínek: SHAKESPYRE – A comedy full of errors /Divadlo Husa na provázku/
Once upon a time there was a house: THE PRINCE OF DANMARK, THE BLACKAMOOR OF VENICE, THE VERONA LOVERS on many floors under one roof.
8:00pm PUPPET MACHINE FOR FILMS /Divadlo Buchty a loutky/
Buchty a loutky will bring a puppet machine for all the movies of the world. You just have to say the title of a movie you would like to see, and Buchty a loutky will immediately start playing it, in a short version, with a detached view and a humor of their own. Be ready for unexpected moments!
9:00pm + movie Chcípáci - ČZ 2006, Radek Beran, 65min., english subtitles
A puppet movie for adults with autobiographical elements. Chcípáci is our tribute to trashy and depressed stories. A seemingly fatal conflict wins over an equally, or maybe even more, fatal love, and not only one, but four. The villain is cornered and the foursome love overcome…
Kinematograf bratří Čadíků
The open-air cinema on the Strelecky island is part of the project Kinematograf bratří Čadíků. Since 1992, when it was founded, it has expanded its activity a lot and has become a popular cultural event. Its popularity is supported by the fact that it doesn't screen movies only in the center of large cities, but it also often goes to places that lack a movie theatre and where the cultural possibilities are not large. Today, it owns 13 mobile cinemas that screen mainly Czech movies. The screening has become a traditional part of most Czech film and music festivals and cultural events. But the Kinematograf doesn't remain in the Czech and the Slovak Republics only; since 2002 it has started traveling to other European cities also. This year, the Kinematograf will visit more than 100 cities.
The island's cultural life will be accompanied by special events, some of which are of charitable nature.
