This Prague version of an American movie palace opened on 3rd December 1907, in a stunning mix of various Renaissance styles and Art Nouveau with seating for over 500. It was built for the grandfather of former Czech President Vaclav Havel.
It is the main attraction of the Lucerna Arcade, a hundred year-old collection of entertainment and retail venues. It is also the oldest continuously operating movie theater in Europe and the site of the first showing of a sound movie in Prague. The original auditorium now seats 453 and in 2013 a second screen seating 51 was opened in a space which had originally been the owners private cinema.
The theater premieres first-run Czech and Hollywood films (the American films in English), and is a host venue for various film festivals throughout the year.
The Lucerna Music Bar in the theater’s basement is just that, a bar with cheap drinks and live bands, decorated in faded 1970’s disco-era decor.
